p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Leptoglossus occidentalis Western Conifer Seed Bug


This is in the same family, Coreidae, as the familiar Dock Bug Coreus marginatus. It was introduced from the USA into Europe in 1999 and has now spread to the UK. It may be found overwintering in houses.

The family is known as Leaf-footed or Paddle-footed Bugs. This refers to the flattened projections on the back legs (absent in Coreus).

This one was found by friends in their house in Newbury. It was dead when it was brought to me so it was not in pristine condition. Our friends sat for ages, searching through my insect books, which are some of the most recently published in the UK. However, this species is too recent a migrant to be included. I had to search the internet for images.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, plus Raynox MSN-202 for the close-ups. Sunlight or
triple TTL flash.

The stereo is crosseye
