Although similar to other green mirids (eg Orthotylus sp), this bug is the only one to occur on gorse in late summer.
The upper surface is covered in scale-like pale hairs and the clavus is darkened in males. The vertex is relatively wide in relation to the eye width.
Found widely on gorse Ulex in southern Britain and may be abundant where it occurs.
