A beautiful Shield Bug with some intrinsic puzzle like patterns over it. This was sighted and photographed at my usual field here in Pollachi, Tamilnadu. It was from September, 2019. They belong to the family “Pentatomidae”, which is the largest family in the superfamily Pentatomoidea, and contains around 900 genera and over 4700 species. More to come, stick around. 😊
