It's the method of networking your VM. Typically it is one of NAT,
Bridged or Host Only. If it's Bridged, you won't see an actual
interface of type "bridge" - but you will have specified the interface
to bridge with, i.e., one of the native interfaces on your Linux
system. That's the "bridge interface" I mean.

Unless your VM is running in "Host Only" mode, there is no virtual
interface for wireshark to capture. So you have to capture from an
interface that the VM's traffic transits, and filter on some attribute
of the VM's traffic, such as the VM's IP address.

OR run wireshark on the virtual - then it will definitely see the
interface :-)
