It is bright green and stippled with tiny black dots in spring and summer, but changes to greeny-bronze in autumn. Its wing tips are dark brown.
Females lay clusters of small, barrel-shaped eggs on the undersides of leaves. These hatch into wingless nymphs, which crawl between plants to feed, and become the new generation of adults in September. These bugs can often be seen basking in the sun during late summer before they hibernate. Both adults and nymphs suck plant sap.
It is sometimes called a green stink bug as it produces a pungent odour from special glands if handled or disturbed.
As if by magic this bug stopped by to say hello and ended up the subject of the theme... isn't it a ugly brute.... ha!
