Brownish hemipteran clinging tightly to Bromus inermis infloresence, past flowering and with developing seeds. Flattened body, releasing an acrid smell when captured. Collected. Near Glycyrrhiza lepidota patch in full flower covering ca 75 square meters, in open, sunny grassland habitat with Sisymbrium loeselii, Bromus inermis, and Agropyron cristatum. Sunny day, near noon, calm, 87 F.

Elevation ca 4000 feet. Disturbed riparian corridor on stream restoration site within a patchwork of native and non-native grassland.

Identified to genus in Slater & Baranowski 1978. Important field marks include the enlarged scutellum with a pale midline; the coria visible along nearly their entire lengths along its margins; and the lack of distinctly pointed anterolateral angles of the pronotum.
