A yellow-green species in which the female and the nymphs are highly distinctive, but the male less so. The colouring resembles several other difficult species, but in the female the vertex is substantially wider than the pronotum (below), and also noticeably elongate and sharply pointed. The nymphs have very elongate bodies, with the pronotum narrowing posteriorly.
Found on Carex (sedges) in marshy places, usually on alkaline soils. Local, but can be common where it occurs.
Adult: May to October
Length 3.5-4 mm
