Garden Bug!! This little fellow is in abundance in our garden and rapidly eating it's way through all our leaves of various plants as you can see in the picture. I have scoured the internet to try and i.d. him but the nearest I can come up with is harlequin bug. Any help would be appreciated Bulgaria,Geotagged,Nezara viridula,Summer,bug,garden,green,pest Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

  1. I'm reasonably sure that this is a nymph of the Southern Green Stink Bug. Reference:

    It's quite beautiful! The difficulty in identification is that nymphs look radically different from adults.

''Nezara viridula'', commonly known as the southern green stink bug or green vegetable bug , is a plant-feeding stink bug. Although believed to have originated in Ethiopia, it can now be found around the world. Because of its preference for certain species of legumes, such as beans and soybeans, it is an economically important pest on such crops.
