Gambrus bipunctatus


Over all length 8mm. A black and orange species with white on the hind tarsi, the tip of the abdomen, face and a whitish patch midway along the antennae. I think it might be this species.


Woodland edge, hedgerows and rough grassland. The larvae parasitize species such as Drinker Moths and Wainscots.

Not well recorded but with records from the south, middle and north of Britain and Scotland.
