The patterning of this largely grass-feeding genus is normally easily recognised, but the species are less easily separated.
A. consobrina is relatively easily recognised. It has a shagreened pronotum (with bobbles on), rather than being striolate, and the black triangles at the base of the scutellum are separated from the sides. The dark veins are particularly prominent towards the tips of the forewings, and some of the cells in the centres of the forewings are dark-edged.
A common species among low plants across Britain.
Adult: February to November
Length 3.5-4 mm
