What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Found this in my Morison’s "washed and ready" salad!
May well have eaten one of his relatives with my pizza… As it’s early spring in the UK, I suspect this is not native to us. Possibly Iberian? Look forward to a response.

Hi Garry,
We believe this is a Seed Bug in the Family Lygaeidae. We want to post it before we get a positive identification as we are amused the bug looks like it has an image of Rasputin’s face on its back.

Thanks for the prompt response. Hadn’t noticed the image. Not sure whether to claim it’s Rasputin or notify our church! Off to Morrisons supermarket today for an explanation. Thanks again.
