Orthops in Taylorsville, Utah.
There is a great site on plant bugs in the UK. Check
it out! According to this site, Orthops
prefer small umbellifers such as wild carrot, hemlock and
parsley. These "small flowers are radially
small sepals, 5 petals and 5 stamens". Now
you know where to look for Orthops. © Carol Davis, 4-2-2008
