Aelia acuminata Bishop's Mitre Bug
Family: Pentatomidae

A large and distinctive striped shield bug with an obviously pointed head and ridged pronotum.
There is one generation per year, adults mating and laying eggs in spring and early summer. The larvae feed on the ripening seeds of a range of grasses in the Poaceae; new adults may be found from August onwards. Nymphs may be confused with the smaller Neottiglossa pusilla.
