I found this little creature resting in a leaf, in my back garden . Can you tell me what it’s called ?
This is an immature Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae. Based on images posted to British Bugs, we are confident it is Nezara viridula. British Bugs states: “Native to Africa, but frequently imported to the UK in food produce, it is widespread in southern Europe and has been recorded annually from sites in southern England since 2003 on various foodplants including tomato, beans, golden-rod, Lavatera, Viburnum and hemp agrimony. Manyrecords are from all.”
