|Anthocoris cf. confusus
Anthocoris bugs are a difficult group and some species can be very hard to identify.
The forewings are shiny only on the cuneus and the outer part of the embolium (along the outer edge), and at the apex of the corium. The 1st antennal segment is dark, and the 2nd largely pale at the base. The forewings are relatively darkly marked compared with A. nemorum and the markings on the membrane also differ. It is very difficult to separate from A. nemoralis, but the latter generally appears to have paler femora.
The species is found on many different deciduous trees, and is common and very widespread.
Adult: All year
Length 3.5-4.0 mm
