Flower Bug and nymph

Observation - Flower Bug and nymph - UK and Ireland. Description: This bug is very prevalent on our site. However, I don’t recollect ever seeing one individual of this species attacking another. Is there a protective intra-species recognition mechanism, or does cannibalism occur?
