Campylomma annulicorne
Family: Miridae

Campylomma species are very small pale bugs which have a characteristically short 2nd antennal segment (equal to or less than the head width). The tibial spines are set in black spots.

In C. annulicorne the rostrum is shorter, reaching the mid coxae and the 1st and 2nd antennal segments are black in males. Females are much more similar to C. verbasci.

Local on willows, particularly Osier Salix viminalis and White Willow S. alba in southern and central England.

Adult: June-October
Length ~3mm
