More insects

Many insects rest on leaves in the window box.  Today in addition to the gold-green Chrysotus spp. (Diptera Dolichopodidae) that are around all summer, I found the wing-waving Sepsis fulgens, the lauxaniid fly Minettia longipennis and the neat gold moth, Micropterix aruncella.  There are only six Sussex records for this in the Biodiversity Record Centre's database, six of them from the garden here.  It is a pretty little thing as this picture shows.

I have now recorded over seventy spcies from Wbx.
