Red Sword-grass

Had a visit from 2241 Red Sword-grass Xylena vetusta on wednesday night. They really are something different arn't they. Was trying to gently persuade it to open its wings for a pic but it prefered to skuttle (And was very good at it too)

This species is a always good to see and records are now suggesting it is quite widespread throughout Calderdale with two distinct flight times March/April and Oct/Nov.
