Sweeping changes

Sweeping pathsides yesterday turned up quite a few species - flies, sawflies and bugs - though most of the flies are already listed as is the common Anthocorus bug. Bibio johannis was a new one to me, (and the species on the front of the Bibionidae key!) while I was surprised to find that the sawfly Aglaostigma aucupariae was already on my PSL list.

Bibio jonhannis

Aglaostigma aucupariae

Not a bad haul from yesterday then, with five new additions.I also just noticed that I have forgotten to add Arion ater from the other night, so I'll have to do that too.

436 Phylloscopus collybita Chiffchaff
437 Fannia mollissima A lesser house fly
438 Bibio johannis A Bibionid fly
439 Triphleba lugubris A Phorid fly
440 Aglaostigma aucupariae A sawfly
