Closterotomus trivialis

Last update: 13 April 2020

This smaller true bug was resting on Dame’s rockets. It is Closterotomus trivialis (det. GerardL), a very rare species! [2]

She occurs in southern parts of Europe and is an introduced species here in the Netherlands, where it was first observed in 1998 (source: Nederlands soortenregister) [1].

A rather nice find.
