The two species of Batracomorphus can be separated from Iassus by the 5 (rather than 3) spines at the tip of the hind femur.
B.irroratus is smaller than B.allionii and the green forewings are covered with small black dots, which sometimes extend onto the pronotum and vertex.
A local species found mainly on chalk downland where it is associated with common rock-rose Helianthemum nummularium, as far north as Yorkshire.
