Dolycoris baccarum (Hairy Shieldbug)
A hairy Shieldbug coloured green on its dorsal surfaces and legs by a covering of Pleurococcus or similar simple green algae. I have seen quite a few like this along with many specimens of green Shield bugs that have a similar coating on the dorsal surfaces and legs. I assume that the algae has grown whilst they were hibernating and has yet to be cleaned off by the bugs as they fully awaken.
