Caption: Common green capsid bug (Lygocoris pabulinus), artwork. This species of plant bug measures between 5.6-6.0mm long. Its bright green colour serves to camouflage it against the plants on which it feeds. It is a common pest of many species of garden plant, feeding on the sap of young shoot tips and buds. When it feeds it secretes a chemical which causes the surrounding tissue to die. When the buds open the dead areas tear open and holes appear in the new leaves.
