Tales from the Cryptocephalus

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Tuesday, 19 July 2011 17:11

Finding things in quadrats is proving quite a good technique to add to my pan-species lit without having to really do anything. I added two species today. First off, what I am fairly sure is Cryptocephalus bilineatus. This is a Nb species that seems to have a concentration of records on the Downs, I was indeed at Southerham today.
Also in the quadrat, this gall on Hedge Bedstraw. In it was the larvae of the fly Geocrypta galii. Just a short one tonight as it's moth group and there is yet another exciting publication to get my hands on being unveiled tonight!

Looks good for C. bilineatus to me, I've just been looking at some from the Isle of Wight last weekend, pretty things!
