New bug species discovered on Texel island


This video shows a Rhopalus subrufus bug.

Today, warden Jitske Esselaar on Texel in the Netherlands reports on research about bugs on the island in 2015.

Four species, new for Texel, were found: Hesperocorixa castanea, an aquatic species discovered in a pond.

Liorhyssus hyalinus is a land species. It had been found earlier on Schiermonnikoog, Terschelling and Vlieland islands.

Compsidolon salicellum was found in a forest; a first for all Wadden Sea islands.

Finding Rhopalus subrufus was also a first for the Wadden islands.
