About this book

Illustrations of adults of all 36 species of shieldbug and 10 species of leatherbug currently native or recently colonised in Britain and Ireland.

As well as illustrations of all the adults, last instar nymphs are also included of the most frequently found and common species.

Text includes information on life cycles, recognising both the groups and separating them from similar-looking insect groups. Concise text for each species includes field characters, similar species, colour variants, active season, habitat and general distribution.

A number of the species included here are not illustrated in other available guides on the group.
