Jewel bugs, Shield Backed Bugs -Family Scutelleridae
Species in this family are known as Jewel Bugs due to their often brilliant coloration or shield-backed bugs. Bugs in this family are usually colourful with metallic colour of spots. They are medium to large size. The head is triangular, antenna are 3-5 segmented. Jewel Bugs and Shield-backed bugs are plant suckers. They can be distinguished from other bugs by their scutellum completely covered the whole abdomen and wings. This is why sometimes they are miss-recognized as beetle. They are easily distinguished from beetles by having sucking mouthparts and the shield on the back is continuous, not the divided wings cover with separation at the middle. 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
