         The Green Shieldbug Palomena prasina is a very familiar insect in the UK although it may sometimes be confused with the Gorse Shieldbug Piezodurus lituratus or the recently introduced Southern Green Shieldbug Nezara viridula, both of which have been illustrated elsewhere on this web site. A partial life-history is shown including two distinct colour-forms of final instar nymphs.
