Similar in shape to the much commoner H. urticae, but smaller and lacking long hairs on the head and pronotum.
The tibiae have a dark ring at the base and the antennae are largely pale, particularly the 2nd segment.
Largely confined to southern England and south Wales, this is a scarce species associated with thyme growing in warm habitats such as chalk downland, quarries and sand dunes.
Adult: all year
Length 5.0-5.5 mm
