Dictyonota fuliginosa
Family: Tingidae

Dictyonota species and Kalama tricornis have two rows of meshes at the lateral edges of the forewings and uniformly wide antennae (the 3rd segment is as thick or thicker than the 4th). In D. fuliginosa, the antennae are mainly brown.

Found locally in southern and eastern England on broom, particulary favouring old bushes with many seedpods. The life cycle is similar to D. strichnocera.
