Sir John's Hill Habrodon revisited

Habrodon habitat: Ash trunk on south facing escarpment
I was back counting Golden Plovers between Laugharne and Pendine yesterday and I paid my respects to the Habrodon perpusillus. It appeared far more distinctive to my eye on this visit compared to previous visits, when conditions were dry, so hopefully this pic will prove useful in helping to develop a search image for this very rare, but easily overlooked species.

  1. The more photos the merrier. I keep thinking I might have found it but it's always young Cryphaea.

  2. Ditto, hopefully one of us will encounter the real deal eventually. I do find that revisiting species I rarely see is by far the best way for me to learn a species.
