Anthocoris confusus (Reuter, 1884)
One of the commonest of a very difficult group of plant bugs to identify, Anthocoris confusus can be found on many deciduous trees in well vegetated habitats. Because of the identification difficulties, all the Anthocoridae are decidedly under-recorded in Nottinghamshire. The only confirmed record we have is from Lambley Cemetery in late August 2016.
