|Anthocoris cf. limbatus
One of the easier flower bugs to identify, the forewings in A. limbatus are entirely shiny, but unlike A. nemorum, the pronotum is brown in the posterior half. The forewings are generally lighter than in the more common species, and the membane markings also typically different.
The species is associated with sallows and willows, primarily on fens. It is not widely distributed or common, but occurs across several counties in the southeastern part of England.
Adult: All year
Length 3-3.5 mm
