Genus Agriopocoris

Agriopocoris species are dark, dorsally flattened coreids that are often mistaken for Flat Bugs (Aradidae).  Most of the adults are wingless and resemble nymphs, though winged forms do occur.  The adults are usually around 8-12mm bodylength.  Four species are listed in Australia.
