Species text
Berytinus hirticornis is a Nationally Scarce dry grassland species at one time thought, in Britain, to be confined to Devon. This stiltbug has, in recent years, appeared in south-eastern England and has been spreading rapidly. It is still of somewhat restricted and local distribution. It is associated with Grass Vetchling Lathyrus nissolia, but possibly also with other hosts. References
