Anthocoris nemoralis (predator) (Fabricius, 1794)
This small bug is an important predator of psyllids (e.g. see Shaltiel & Coll, 2004) and is produced commercially. The species is native to Europe and the Mediterranean region where it lives on trees and shrubs infested with psyllids and other soft-bodied insects. It has been introduced into North America in the 1960s against the pear psyllid (Cacopsylla pyri) and is now widely distributed there (Horton et al., 2004).
