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. podagricus has two large and several smaller spines on the front femora. The tibial hairs are roughly equal to the tibial width. E. plebejus has longer tibial hairs (up to 2X tibial width).
A southern species, found locally in chalky and sandy areas across central and southern England. Seems particularly associated with moss beneath hawthorns growing on chalk downland.
