Anthocoris tomentosus (predator) Péricart, 1971

This small predatory bug is found in western North America where it feeds on psyllids and other soft-bodied arthropods, including various pest species. It is often recorded from orchards and is, for example, an important natural enemy of the pear psyllid, Cacopsylla pyricola (Agustí et al., 2003).
