Entomological help needed  
Can someone identify the species of bug in the pics below for me? I'm curious.

A beetle! Seriously, he looks like a leaf beetle or weevil, but he's not in my insect book. Where is he (county, town, type of plant)? Also, how big (or small)?

It's been identified as a 4th instar nymph of the Green Stink Bug, aka the Green Shield beetle.

The photos were taken at my folks' place in Wrexham, North East Wales. And the bug was only a couple of millimetres long. Tiny little thing, really. :)

Thanks for your help.

Glad you had someone who was more help than me! I must admit I like trying to identify insects and creatures I find.
