Stygnocoris fuligineus (Geoffroy, 1785)
A common Lygaeid bug, but again, there are similar species which help to make identification quite difficult. Stygnocoris fuligineus is a small species of grassy habitats, including arable field margins where it can be found by careful searching of sparsely vegetated ground. A single adult and numerous nymphs, were found under dry vegetation after harvesting at King's Wood near Market Warsop in early September 2013.
