  1. Super cool scene. Found the common name for it: Striped Oak Bug. But likely you already knew. Posted 7 months ago
    1. Thanks Ferdy, I'm usually not up to speed with vernacular names much, so I checked what waarneming has for English names ... none ... so I added your find there too :o) Posted 7 months ago

''Rhabdomiris striatellus'' is a bug found widespread through the palearctic ecozone and common in the United Kingdom. The species is partial to oak trees. The body of the insect reaches 7–9 millimetres . The body is yellow to reddish brown and has yellow veins and dark stripes on its wings. The bug can also be much darker and similar to its relative, ''Miris striatus''. The larvae suck flowers and fruits while the adults prey on aphids and the larvae of other insects.
