Spotted on hyacinth bean plant (lablab purpureus )
@ Jolly: I just updated this spotting. Species was spotted on hyacinth bean plant ( Lablab purpureus )
This is also a shield backed bug but a different species to that found by Jolly. I cannot find the species but thi family is (Scutelleridae). Most of this group are more large and showy http://www.flickr.com/photos/hkmoths/270...
Very nice. Looks similar to my spotting but different color: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/130... Where did you find it? What is the host plant?
