A small (4 mm.), black beetle-like shieldbug. The scutellum is very large and almost entirely covers the abdomen.Widespread but local in England and Wales, this species is largely coastal in the north. Cumbria is at the north-western limit of this shieldbug's British distribution. Here it is restricted to coastal sand dune sites where it is generally found wandering on bare sand. It is very easily overlooked as one of the small black Histerid beetles. It has been reported from Sandscale Haws and Eskmeals Nature Reserve.
