More Entomological Variety

Sage Leafhopper (Eupteryx melissae), Guineaford, Devon, 05/08/2012

Allygus mixtus, Whetstone, 16/08/2012

Tapered Drone Fly (Eristalis pertinax), Enderby, 18/08/2012

Helophilus pendulus, Enderby, 18/08/2012

Cinnabar, Enderby, 18/08/2012

I think this is a Grey Pug, Enderby, 18/08/2012

This one is almost certainly Zygina angusta, though separation from the scarcer Zygina ordinaria is not 100% reliable from external characters. From the garden trap last night.

After consultation with national experts from British Bugs, this one is not identifiable (possibly not even by gen det!) it's one of the Aphrodes bicinctus/makarovi complex which at present is not fully resolved and may well include more than two species. Enderby, 18/08/2012
