Western Conifer Seed Bug


Regret not too good a picture in artificial light -

  Native to the USA and introduced into Europe in 1999, this species has since spread rapidly and during the autumn of 2008 and 2009 influxes of immigrants were reported from the coast of southern England, with a wide scatter of  records inland.

This bug was found in our bathroom window apparently they are
attracted to light and many enter buildings in search of hibernation sites in the autumn.
