Phylus bugs are fairly long and slender and all are partly predatory. There are three species in the UK, which can be separated with some reliability by the colour of the head and forewngs. Hostplant is also a useful aid to identification.
P. coryli is common throughout the UK on hazel. The forewings vary from light brown to black, with the cuneus usually slightly reddish.
Compare: P. palliceps
Length 4.5-5.5 mm
