Out of County - one to look for

Ok, so not East Glamorgan, but this Sheildbug was found near the Llanwern steel works yesterday - Eurydema oleracea. As far as we are aware this is only the second Welsh record. It is a species that is spreading west and there is no real reason for it not to turn up in the eastern half of the county, keep your eyes peeled!

  1. Interesting...I've certainly not seen that species, but will be sure to keep my eyes open for it.

    Another out of county shieldbug to report - a Hawthorn Shieldbug at the summit of Pen y Fan yesterday (880m asl).
