LYCHEE SHIELD BUG - a jewel bug  Chyrsocoris stolli  ©nagraj v    Jewel bugs are small to medium-sized oval-shaped hemipterans or true bugs with a body length averaging at 5 to 20 mm (0.20 to 0.79 in). They can easily be distinguished from stink bugs (Pentatomidae) because the shield-like enlarged last section of their thorax (known as the scutellum, Latin for “little shield”) completely covers the abdomen and the wings, unlike the elytra of beetles which are hardened forewings.
