  1. Weird! Are those little black marks hairs or just the pattern on the bug? Posted 9 months ago
    1. What marks? The two on the pronotum are pigmented spots (and can be larger on some specimen). The ones on the femora are also pigmented spots, but often the spots carry a hair. The hairs on the tibia also have a pigmented base. The dorsal hairs on the rest of the body are just that - black hairs and as such an important character for ID :o) Posted 9 months ago, modified 9 months ago
      1. Lol, sorry - dumb question! I wasn't sure if the dorsal, black marks were just marks or actually were hairs. I have never seen a hairy Miridae before! It's so cool! Posted 9 months ago
  2. Stunning shot, Arp! Posted 9 months ago
    1. Thanks Ferdy :o) Posted 9 months ago
