Species text
This is a large pale greenish brown bug found in dry open habitats. There were nineteenth century records of this species from Surrey and Sussex, but until recently it was believed to be extinct in Britain (Bowdrey, 1999). It is now recorded widely in warm open flower rich grassland in the southeast, presumably in response to climate change, on ?waste ground? or other unmanaged and sporadically disturbed habitat.
