  1. Somehow, these look rather small(ish)? Do you have an ID on the plant they're on? Some of the smaller species of Shieldbugs (such as Eysarcoris maybe) are more host specific than others ...
    P.S. Okay, so you don't have the likes of Eysarcoris there ... what about that wee little Cosmopepla you have there? Does that coincide with the host plant?

    1. Thanks for the input! The host plant (*I think* with ~75% confidence) was comfrey (Symphytum sp.). I think Cosmopepla sp. could be a match. I read that they have various host plants. And, Google tells me that their eggs resemble these. Posted 3 months ago
