Eurysa is a small genus of three UK species which share a weak, partly obsolescent keel on the frons, and weak central keels on the dorsal surface. They are generally very small, and often brachypterous; two of the three species are very rare.
E. lineata is usually brachypterous, with longitudinal bands on the scutellum and sometimes also pronotum; the frons is partly dark with lighter spots in its lower part. Macropters are much darker on the scutellum, with a characteristic brown area on the inner angle of the forewings.
Local, on dry grassy areas in the southern half of England.
Adult: May to August
Length 2.5-3.5 mm (macropters 3.5-4.5 mm)
