Psallus ambiguus (Fallén, 1807)
A common Plant Bug found on a range of deciduous trees. There are several very similar Psallus species, so identification is often extremely difficult. In Psallus ambiguus, the antennae of the female have the first and third segments black, with the basal half of the second segment being lighter, becoming dark. This female Psallus ambiguus, was one of several adults beaten from foliage during an invertebrate survey at Newstead Abbey in late June 2013.
