[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Scutelleridae are otherwise known as jewel bugs due to their often brilliant colouration or shield-backed bugs, due to the enlargement of the last section of their thorax into a continuous shield over the abdomen and wings. This latter characteristic distinguishes them from most other families within heteroptera, and may lead to misidentification as a beetle rather than a bug. These insects feed on plant juices from a variety of different species, including some commercial crops. Closely related to stink bugs, they may also produce an offensive odour when disturbed.
