Nysius ericae (Schilling, 1829)
The most common and widespread species of the UK's seven Nysius species. Nysius ericae is usually found on sites with much bare ground. In early October 2015, we found several adult and a single nymph (shown bottom right), under debris on a brownfield site in the centre of Market Warsop. The site will ultimately be built on.
