|Some examples of lace bug species are: Stephanitis rhododendri, andromeda lace bug (Stephanitis takeyai), Stephanitis pyri, Monosteira unicostata, sycamore lace bug (Corythucha ciliata), gorse lacebug (Dictyonota strichnocera), Acalypta parvula, Dictyonota fuliginosa, Kalama tricornis, Derephysia foliacea, Tingis ampliata, spear thistle lace bug (Tingis cardui), Physatocheila dumetorum, Dictyla convergent, Agramma laetum, hawthorn lace bug (Corythucha cydonia), sugarcane lace bug (Leptodictya tabida), avocado lace bug (Pseudacysta persea), azalea lace bug (Stephanitis pyrioides) and lantana lace bug (Teleonemia scrupulosa). While most lace bugs produce 1 or 2 new generations per year, many species produce more. |
|Red shield bug|
|The Red shield bug (Carpocoris mediterraneus), also known as the Mediterranean stink bug or skull shield-bug, belongs to the genus Carpocoris, in the order Hemiptera and Rhynchota, the suborder true bugs (Heteroptera), the infraorder Pentatomomorpha, the superfamily Pentatomoidea, the family Pentatomidae, the subfamily Pentatominae and the tribe Carpocorini. Carpocoris mediterraneus atlanticus is a subspecies of this bug.
The red shield bug is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean region, as far north as Austria, and as far east as Iran. |
|Lace bugs feed solely on plants, either on individual plant species (monophagous) or on a limited number of plant families (oligophagous). This is reflected in the name of each species (hawthorn lace bug, sugarcane lace bug, avocado lace bug, azalea lace bug etc. ). Lace bugs sit on the flowers and leaf undersides of their host plants. These insects are rather inactive and mostly hide between plantís hairs, spines or in deeper holes. When disturbed they are unlikely to escape. Lace bugs feed on plant juices, which they remove from the epidermis layer of the leaf undersides with their piercing and sucking mouth parts. When the leaf cells are empty, the damaged area is discoloured bronze or silver. Each individual spends its entire ...|
|Due to their physical characteristics, the southern green stink bug can be confused with the green shield bug (Palomena prasina). The latter is about 1 mm smaller and has no clear grainy boundary at the front edges of the scutellum. A key identifying characteristic for both species is the shape of the orifice of the defensive gland outlet. In the southern g...|
...prasina). The latter is about 1 mm smaller and has no clear grainy boundary at the front edges of the scutellum. A key identifying characteristic for both species is the shape of the orifice of the defensive gland outlet. In the southern green stink bug it is short and wide, and in the green shield bug it is elongated and oval.
|The green shield bug is mainly found in hedges and on the foliage of trees. Linden, alder, thistles and nettles are the preferred food source of the green shield bug.
The defence secretions of this bug can causeallergic reactions in humans.|
|Southern green stink bug|
|The southern green stink bug (Nezara viridula) is a species in the order bugs (Hemiptera), the suborder true bugs (Heteroptera), the infraorder Pentatomomorpha, the superfamily Pentatomoidea, the family stink bugs (Pentatomidae), the subfamily Pentatominae, and the genus Nezara. The southern green stink bug probably originated in Ethiopia, but is now widespread in America, Europe, Africa and Asia. It occurs most frequently in the Mediterranean. These species can produce 3 new generations a year under favourable climatic conditions. |
|The forest bug (Pentatoma rufipes) belongs to the family Pentatomidae. It is one of the biggest bugs in Central Europe and can reach a length of 13 to 15 mm. In the summer, it is bronze coloured, in the autumn, dark brown in colour. The upper edges of the pronotum are strongly curved. The neck shield at the top lights in orange. The proboscis i...|
...red, in the autumn, dark brown in colour. The upper edges of the pronotum are strongly curved. The neck shield at the top lights in orange. The proboscis is very long. The legs and the first set of antennae are maroon coloured. The larvae of forest bugs are dark. With age they become lighter in colour, especially their abdomens.
|Green shield bug|
|The green shield bug (Palomena prasina) is widespread in Europe and is one of the most frequently occurring members of the Pentatomidae family. It is characteristic of these bugs to discharge foul smelling secretions when they are in danger.|
