Help Please: Scoparia sp.

Postby MPStanyer on Sat Jul 03, 2021 6:03 pm

Is this Scoparia subfusca or just a worn individual of a different species. It was a shade over 10mm which I think is on the small side for subfusca perhaps?
Thanks

Hi Martyn
Probably Scoparia ambigualis although it would need dissecting to be sure
Regards

Thanks Steve. I did wonder if it was a worn ambigualis. Cheers
