After looking at Ashley Wood's illustrations of Shieldbugs on his website, I believe these to be Woundwort Shieldbug Instars. The larger of the two
has a sort of Yin Yang design on its wingcases,
while the smaller one looks like an ornament
designed by Rene Lalique, milk glass and burnished copper with jewels along the sides.
