Lyramorpha cf. maculifer
A "giant shield bug" (Tessaratomidae). This is the same individual as posted yesterday in spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/715....... She's still on the job but look how her brood of nymphs has changed in just 1 day!
This spotting on a guava (Psidium sp.) tree in a large semi-urban yard and garden next to a disturbed patch of remnant forest. This is in the equatorial tropics of northern New Guinea.
