Species text
Several recent records nationally are detailed in Merrifield & Merrifield (2000) and Jones (2002). It is a parasite of shield bugs, in Europe with single records from two British species Palomena prasina and Pentatoma rufipes. In England it is found in woodland margins and old meadows (Belshaw 1993). Palomena prasina occurs in meadows, the margins of heaths, woodland clearings and parks. Pentatoma rufipes is commonly found in woodlands, and oak is a major host (Southwood & Leston 1959). References
