Elasmucha grisea is a rather common and widespread species present in most of Europe. A comparative analysis of the ovary structure during the life cycle, particularly the presence of atresive ovarian follicles in the ovarioles of egg- and nymph guarding females, as well as the shape and structure of the apical part of the tropharium all support the hypothesis of cooperation between females in E.

Antennas are blackish in the male, dark brown in the female. Acanthosomatidae, Heteroptera defend eggs and small nymphs against invertebrate predators. However, when the clutch size was manipulated, small females protecting large clutches lost significantly more eggs than large females guarding small clutches or females in the control groups guarding clutches of optimal size.
