[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This definitely is a Shield Bug from the Family Pentatomidae, and from the coloration and pattern the Genus seems to be Eurydema.

Though I cant be certain about the species ??

This one was found on a grassy mountain slope lazing around on a small bush in the the early morning sunlight. They took an awfully long time to get active.

The Workshop has another picture of a group of them just lying one on top of each other as a bunch both adults and young ones.
