Dicyphus pallicornis (Fieber, 1861)
Found on Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea) growing in Cutts Wood near Bilsthorpe in early March 2017, this Dicyphus pallicornis seems to be one of very few Nottinghamshire records. The adults are either fully-winged or short-winged, but there are other species of Dicyphus which are all very similar. Going on the basis that we located two specimens after searching just a handful of Foxglove plants, it would seem logical to suggest that D. pallicornis will be quite commonly found across the county.
