Eremocoris are medium-sized or large ground bugs which have rather reddish-brown forewings and a pair of semicircular white spots on the membrane, adjacent to the cuneus.
E. abietus has one large and several smaller spines on the front femora. The hairs on the hind tibiae are shorter than the tibial width (roughly equal in E. fenestratus).
A scarce species with recent records only from the Highland region of Scotland, where it has been recorded in litter beneath a variety of plants, including Scots pine, juniper, crowberry and bearberry.
