Further Information

On the move This striking species was formerly restricted to western and south-western coasts, from Sussex to Lancashire, but is now widespread inland in Devon and Cornwall and has recently turned up in Avon, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, North Hampshire, Suffolk, Kent, Bedfordshire and Shropshire. It appears to be on the move. [Thanks to Keith Alexander, Bernard Nau, Darrel Watts and others for info]
Similar species There are a number of superficially similar black and red bugs on the continent which may arrive here. Confirmatory characters include the numerous close parallel veins on the (dark) membrane of the wing, the upturned apex of the scutellum and the protruding stink glands between the second and third legs which are visible from above.
