Common Green Capsid - Lygocoris pabulinus
Length 5-6.5 mm. Lygocoris species can be distinguished from similar green bugs by the very fine and inconspicuous pale brown tibial spines and at high magnification, the break in the keel between the eyes. The pronotum is rather straight-sided. In L. pabulinus the pronotum is smooth and the whole upper surface is usually uniformly green.
Found on a range of woody and herbaceous plants, particularly nettles.
A very common bug throughout Britain.
Very common in Leicestershire and Rutland.
