Carpocoris pudicus is a species of shield bug in the Pentatomidae family. The head of each paramere has a single tooth. The abdomen is usually narrower or has the same width than pronotum. The humeral angles of pronotum are rounded, with black spot. Scutellum is weakly convex, without depression. These details, distinguish the species from other similar species of Caprocoris, also found in Greece. The pictured Carpocoris pudicus shield bugs were spotted mating, on an asphodel plant, in Nea Demetrias, Volos city, Greece.
