Rhabdomiris striatellus Fabricius, 1794
Common names: Striped Oak Bug [En], Gestreepte Eikenblindwants [Nl]

Tubize, BRABANT ● Belgium

Description: The body of the insect reaches 7–9 millimetres. The body is yellow to reddish brown and has yellow veins and dark stripes on its wings. Females are usually paler then males. The only possible confusion risk is the larger and more elongate Miris striatus, which has a completely yellow/orange cuneus and an entirely dark head.

Biology: Overwintered eggs hatch in April, the larvae feeding on unripe catkins and becoming adult from mid-May onwards. Adults are visible in May-July. They prey on aphids.

Habitat: The species is partial to oak trees.

Distribution: Palaearctic ecozone.
