Description:

The first image is of the bug when I first observed it, – shaded it under an overhanging leaflet and tinged green suggestive of a degree of camouflage. Arguably, the bug was in an ambush position. In the second and third images, the upper leaflet was set aside, giving an appearance consistent with those of C. virgula in British Bugs Gallery.
