giant shield bug

Lyramorpha cf. maculifer

Description:

A "giant shield bug" (Tessaratomidae). This is the same individual in the same spot as in spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/714.... She's still vigilant but look how her brood of nymphs has changed in just 3 days! Eggs still visible.

Habitat:

This spotting on a guava (Psidium sp.) tree in a large semi-urban yard/garden next to a disturbed patch of remnant forest.
