Banded General - Stratiomys potamida
Seen at Sharpenhoe Clappers, it's been four years since I last saw one of these, long enough to have completely forgotten what it is, the Banded General soldierfly Stratiomys potamida, or that I'd even seen one before. I had to check my emails to find that Stephen Plummer had ID'd one for me in 2008! Senility progressing nicely!
