449c Prays oleae arrives in Calderdale!

I found myself loitering around Newbank garden centre in West Vale this morning trying my best to look like a customer when in fact I was there looking for olive trees to see if the aforementioned species was present. It took about 2 seconds to find the one and only mine.It contained frass but no larva unfortunately. Only discovered in Britain in 2009 it seems likely that this stowaway is now present in garden centres throughout the land.
