Southern Marsh Orchids
Sunday 5 June 2016
While investigating a tiny outlier of VC41, in the otherwise staunchly VC42 square SN9908, I came across this rather attractive Cranefly, with a very distinctive pattern on its wings. The habitat was slightly rank marshy grassland, close to forestry, at 380m ASL. Despite its apparently distinctive markings, I have been unable to find it anywhere online, so any suggestions will be welcome.
