|A BIT ABOUT BUGS
One of a very large number of similar species with a roughly square vertex, but the pale brown colouring of the dorsal surface is unusual. There is often a pale midline, while the scutellum may be black at the sides in macropters. The frons is convex, and entirely brownish and the first gonocoxa is simple in outline. The abdomen has a pale line down athe centre, and large, but variable, dark areas.
A common species in short, dry grasslands across southern England, south Wales, and Yorkshire, but like many delphacids, is probably under-recorded.
Adult: March to August
Length 2-2.5 mm (3.5 mm macropters)
