Anthocoris confusus (predator) Reuter, 1884
This small predatory bug is found in temperate parts of Europe and Asia. It has been introduced into North America (e.g. see Horton & Lewis, 2009). A. confusus is a general predator of small, soft-bodied insects like psyllids and aphids. The adults are 3½-4 mm long, mostly black with a brownish-black corium that is interupted by lighter parts. In general, it is similar to Anthocoris nemoralis in size and colouration.
