Shieldbug Obs

Hi David

For what its worth it looks like T luridus but the angle is a difficult one Nymph stages by their virtue recently changed instar are awkward . Technicality the Gorse and one or two of the Ground dwellers could fit the bill on colour and markings from a distance. On instar Obs its also very useful to state the Host plant or whether it was found on the Ground layer Swept or in Taller Vegetatuion etc HTH

Best Wishes
