This page contains pictures and information about Yellow Predatory Shield bugs that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

The bug is orange-yellow, with black marks on the upper and lower surfaces of the body. We took those pictures after the bug flied and landed on the Lantana leaf in Wishart on summer 2001. This bug is a predatory bug.
