Interesting eyes !!
It's the first time I've managed to resolve them this well but in older pics I can just see the white bits.
At first I thought it may be a fungi.
This was on Carex secta, several others including mating pairs in the area.

Description from Wikipedia

Hemiptera /hɛˈmɪptərə/ is an order of insects most often known as the true bugs (cf. bug), comprising around 50,000–80,000 species of cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, shield bugs, and others. They range in size from 1 mm (0.04 in) to around 15 cm (6 in), and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. Sometimes, the name true bugs is applied more narrowly still to insects of the suborder Heteroptera only.

No range data available.
