This genus comprises two fairly large and elongate species, which recall Allygus in size and shape.
T. dilutior is yellow-brown in colour with white wing veins and indistinct orange-brown markings on the vertex and pronotum. The scutellum is faintly marked with dark triangles and two dark dots. This species has large ocelli, which are separated from the eyes by roughly their own diameter.
Common throughout the UK on deciduous trees, particularly oak.
Compare: T. confinis
