Nysius is a difficult genus and many of the seven UK species are very difficult to identify without reference to a specimen.
N. cymoides lacks a dark ring at the base of the 2nd antennal segment and the wing membrane is very long, more than 0.9x longer than the remainder of the body and projecting well beyond the apex of the abdomen.
An uncommon species which is probably an irruptive migrant to Britain from continental Europe.
Adult: ~All year
Length 3.0-4.0 mm
