Of course you weren't invaluable because now I will get to learn the other species as well, good night!

I did not know that I spent so long for checking the Lygus species...

Mirida, Lygus sp., unfortunately the 3 most common ones are also very variable ones. I tend to Lygus pratensis. Please, verify and check all species!! Rugulipennis, Pratensis and Gemellatus (others?).

Lygus sp, could be a Lygus pratensis, but I have not found any matching pictures. They do seem to have some individual difference though...
