The common flowerbug, ''Anthocoris nemorum'', is a common minute pirate or flower bug.

It is a predatory insect, feeding on small insects including greenflys and red spider mites. It is typically 3–4 mm in length, with reflective forewings and black pronotum. The legs are mostly orange-brown. It more commonly inhabits lower vegetation than trees, and especially nettles in the later half of the growing season. A. nemorum lays its eggs inside plant leaves.
