Hawthorn Shield Bug (Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale) Length 13mm.
Shiny green with black and deep red markings; wings pale and membranous at the tip. Feeds mainly on hawthorn berries and consequently seldom found where this shrub is absent. Also feeds on leaves of other deciduous trees when berries are not available. Favours hedgerows and woods. Autumn adults hibernate and appear again April-July; larvae seen June-August. Widespread in England, Wales and Ireland.
