Orthotylus nassatus
Family: Miridae

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. nassatus is a blue-green species
found on a range of deciduous trees, including oak, lime and ash. The 1st antennal segment is pale from above, but has a dark line on the underside.

Found throughout the UK.

Adult: July-September
Length ~5.0 mm
