Shield Bug
Eggs found in Whitebeam
SDC11922
Description:

The Shield Bug was bright green with a triangle or dark orange or brown formed from its forewings and the edge of its pronotum. There were five sections to its antennae. The eggs (photo 2) were in the same tree and I wondered if they were from this Shield Bug. They were cylindrical, green and with a yellow spot
