A fairly large and mainly brownish plant bug in which the upper surface is covered in flattened golden hairs. Confusion with other species is unlikely, although the long antennae and relatively long hind femora may recall Phytocoris.
Fairly common across the UK in hedgerows and low vegetation, feeding mainly on hop, although nettles and meadowsweet are also used as foodplants.
Length 6-7 mm
