Juniper Shieldbug

Juniper ShieldbugThis is a Juniper Shieldbug, Cyphostethus tristriatus, which is supposedly becoming a common garden species in the southern counties UK.

'It likes Juniper but is also found on Lawson Cypress and similar species, now grown in gardens, which accounts for it becoming more common, but they are certainly few and far between.'
