BIRCH CATKIN BUG Kleidocerys resedae

 

         The Birch Catkin Bug Kleidocerys resedae is one of approximately 90 British ground bug species and as the common name suggests it may be found feeding on the catkins of Birch Betula spp., often in very large numbers. The camouflage becomes more effective when the insects are feeding on older catkins.
