Bawdsey Bugs

Almost a week on, and here's the last batch of bits from the jaunt to Bawdsey last Sunday (at least for now, still one or two bits to try and identify). These were all in the traps in the morning - hence the not very aesthetic egg boxes and plastic trap backgrounds ......

Mottled Grasshopper

Opsius stactogalus - associated with Tamarisk (of which there was loads)

Idiocerus ustulatus - associated with Grey Poplar (of which there was loads)

Probable Idiocerus sp. - haven't managed to resolve this one yet

Phytocoris varipes

Macrotylus horvathi - first recorded in Kent in 2006
