This bug is found on bramble, although never commonly. Macrolophus species can be recognised by the dark bar between the rather small eyes and the pronotum.
This species can be separated from the scarcer M. pygmaeus by the relative length of the 3rd antennal segment, which is at least twice that of the 4th. There is also a small black mark at the apex of the clavus.
Adult: mainly summer, but may overwinter
Length ~4 mm
