Default Bug odds and sods

More buggy odds and sods - all from the garden except one.
Brian V.

Small capsid plant bug Campyloneura virgula



Male leaf cutter bee - Megachile willughbiella



Syrphid hoverfly- natural light



Male soldier fly Chloromyia formosa



A very rare bark fly - not documented since 1867 - found on a house in the Cotswolds and sent to me to photograph



Darter dragonfly on bottlebrush seed pods



Tiny insect nymph ID'd as a waxy lacewing nymph Coniopterygidae about 1.5 mm long with a spider mite passenger



End of a mate - female web spider eats the male.

Thanks for looking and commenting Vasilis, Lori and Phil - much appreciated

Lori - the barkflies were alive but very hungry. It's actually scraping off lichen from a piece of rock in the shot (it seemed to like lichen).
