Acrosternum rubescens - 1st stadium w. rostrum showing First stadium nymph of Acrosternum rubescens, about two days old, with rostrum showing, so it can be seen that the rostrum is not functional yet. Normally this little one would still be sitting on the eggs it emerged from, together with its siblings.

Acrosternum rubescens is an endemic of the Canary Islands. Two of the continental/Mediterranean Acrosternum species have also been recorded from some of the islands and the identification of Acrosternum spp. is not always trivial.
