Enoplops scapha

Percevejo (Adulto) / Squashbug (Adult).
Vallvidrera, Barcelona.

A large and distinctive dark grey squashbug with cream markings on the connexivum. Early instar larvae have very spiny antennae and a green abdomen. Later instars are superficially similar to the much commoner Coreus marginatus but the abdominal tergites are more pointed.

A local species which is mostly confined to coastal areas between Kent and mid-Wales, favouring dry open habitats such as sand dunes and soft cliffs. The larval foodplant is scentless mayweed and other Compositae.

Adult: All year
Length 11-12 mm

Son dos salidas distintas, el fin de semana pasado por Seva-Centelles, y este fin de semana por Vallvidrera. No habia mucha fauna pero almenos los pocos bichos los tenemos, salvo los que se van volando con el viento jeje.
Un petonet, gracias Nico
