GROUND BUG Arocatus longiceps

 

         The ground bug Arocatus longiceps is associated with London Plane Platanus x acerifolia so the one in the photograph may have fallen from one of these trees. This distinctive little bug is a recent immigrant to the UK following range expansion from the Mediterranean region.
