Neophilaenus can be separated from Philaenus by the straight costal margin in the basal two-thirds of the forewing; there are several UK species.
Very similar to the common N. lineatus, from which it is separated by the plate of the vertex, which is as long as the basal width, and more than half as long as the vertex. This species is also generally larger.
Very local, confined to coastal salt-marshes in south-east England.
