DAY 37 - 26th APRIL


The Red Campion is covered in aphids - unfortunately there are two very similar species that need to be separated by counting the microscopic hairs on one of the antennal segments. I might end up doing it eventually. Tentatively they can go down as Brachycaudus lychnidis species group, but not on the list yet.


One from before that did make it was the Springtail stalker beetle that had previously given me the slip. I managed to pot one and key it out as Common Springtail Stalker, Notiophilus biguttatus.


94. Common Springtail Stalker Notiophilus biguttatus.
