Unlike Aneurus species, the wing membrane in Aradus flatbugs does not extend below the apex of the scutellum. A. cinnamomeus is distinguished by the uniformly red-brown colouration; the 2nd and 3rd antennal segments are similar in length.
This species is found on young Scots pines and unlike other bark bugs, feeds on tree sap rather than fungi. Adults are most active on hot days.
A local bug confined to southern England where it is mainly associated with heathland.
Adult: All year
Length 3.5-4.5 mm
