Green shield bug, Palomena prasina, is widespread in the UK.   It is seldom, if ever, troublesome and is a bug you can enjoy sharing your garden with. The bugs show an incredible diversity in their appearance as they develop: from little tiny round green babies with black dots, they grow bigger and bigger until finally acquiring their characteristic shield shape.
