[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The parent bug (Elasmucha grisea) is a shield bug, a type of insect characterized by its shield-shaped body. It is so named because adults remain with their offspring for several weeks after they hatch; this is relatively rare behaviour in the insect world. Adults are approximately 12 mm long.
