Lace Bug is a friend near Shild-backed Bug which inhales the juice of a vegetable leaf. There is an ear-like border in the back brisket. A wing is transparent and the center of the back in the state where it closed serves as a pattern of Z characters of a dark color. The whole is beautiful at the pattern of meshes of a net, and the origin of the name of Lace Bug is because the whole form resembles the ruling. The reverse-side side of leaves, such as a cherry tree, a pear, an apple, and dotage, is crowded with an imago and a larva. The marks which inhaled the juice serve as a spot of light brown, and are known also as a fruit tree noxious insect.
