Approx 1 cm in length I found this bug on a wood spurge plant. One of only 2 British spurge bugs, it is described as scarce on the British Bugs web site. It's my first sighting of it and the id has been confirmed by my county recorder who informed me it's only the fourth 'modern' county record (ie. since 1950).
