Orthotylus is a large genus of predominantly green bugs. Many are extremely similar and species identification based on external features is often difficult. The hostplant can be very informative.
O. flavinervis is one of the larger species and is found on alder and sycamore. The upper surface is covered in dense pale hairs, and the wing membrane is dusky, with yellow veins. The 1st antennal segment is brownish.
A locally common bug throughout England and Wales.
