Species text
This plant-bug is a recent addition to the British fauna and was first recorded at Hackney Marsh in July 1996 (Miller, 2001). It is a predatory feeder, but is usually associated with trees in the genus Acer, such as Sycamore. The bug has been spreading in the London area and was recorded in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire in 2000, and may be found in good numbers where it occurs (Nau & Brooke, 2003). References
