· The vernacular name of the Juniper Bug Cyphosthesus tristriatus refers principally to its original foodplant in the UK where native Juniper Juniperus sp. has declined significantly. However, this shieldbug has adapted its diet to include Lawson (or Lawson’s) Cypress Chamaecyparis lawsoniana and other related coniferous species that have been introduced to many gardens and parks and it is a common insect. The rufous markings are distinctively ‘v’ shaped.
