Description:

Another shieldbug, this one from our friends allotment in Arcais. I cannot work this one out at all. The closest I can get from the British Bugs website is the Bronze Shieldbug but the antennae are wrong, and I cannot find a good reference site for shieldbugs in France.

Thanks for the ID

and the link. I think I'd come across that site before but hadn't been able to find the gallery. I've found the photos now!
