Dicyphus errans Wolff Slender grey capsid

This polyphagous capsid occasionally causes minor damage to potato, puncturing and distorting the foliage. Numbers present, however, are usually small. The adults are slender-bodied, 4.55.0mm long, with the head, thorax and first two antennal segments mainly brown or black; the elytra are mainly grey or yellowish-white and narrow. Nymphs are mainly green but reddish anteriorly. Adults are most numerous in June and July on weeds such as Epilobium and Stachys sylvatica; infestations on potato are most likely to occur on headlands alongside weedy sites.
