Neolygus contaminatus

Neolygus contaminatus

There are quite a few of these green capsid bugs around, and they can be quite confusing to identify with accuracy. This one is usually found on birch, and is common and widespread throughout Britain. The adults are seen June to September, and can grow up to 6mm (0.2in) long.

Rear garden, Staffordshire, England. July 2017.

      • There is a great website for British Hemiptera – bugs – but there are lots on there to go through, and I also have lots of field guides here. Sometimes it can take months, or even years to id things, or I never find an id for them at all, depsite all the keys and reference material I have. That was my original idea when I started photography some years ago, was to id all the nature in my garden, but I am still having surprises thrown up even now, which is great 🙂
