Hawthorn shield bug
Hawthorn shield bugs (Acanthosoma haemorrhoidale) is a species in the order true bugs (Hemiptera), the suborder typical bugs (Heteroptera), the family shield bugs (Acanthosomatidae) and the genus Acanthosoma. It is one of the most common shield bug species in Europe.

The hawthorn shield bug often lives alone in forests, on trees in fields and in forest edges. They prefer hawthorn shrubs, hedges and rowan and are active from April to October. They live on plant juices, preferably from berries. Their larvae live off juices from the leaves.
The hawthorn shield bug reproduces once a year. The females lay their eggs on hawthorn shrubs. The larvae hatch in June and after shedding their skin five times, reach maturity in August. The adult bugs overwinter on the soil.
