Psallus perrisi (Mulsant & Rey, 1852)
A very common Plant Bug found early in the year on Oak. There are several very similar Psallus species, so identification is difficult. The one illustrated, was one of several beaten off a large Oak during an invertebrate survey at Newstead Abbey in late June 2013.
