Hi Mr Bainbridge,

It looks like Seioptera vibrans, which is a Ulidiidae ( Otitidae )
Cheers,
Mick

Re: Seen In Fife

Thank you, Mick - yes, that's dead right.  I'd not seen it before and it's not easy to key it in any book I have.  The internet is wonderful, but only when you already have some clue.   I assume it is of no particular significance, i.e. scarce, RDB, etc....?

Hi Anthony,

No, it doesn’t hold any RDB or Notable status, although, I would not describe it as common
I have about ten Specimens, mostly from outside Dorset, and I have only found one this year
so far!
In my experiance, it usually occurs in bushy areas often close to wet areas, in similar situations
as some of the smaller Strats.
Cheers,
Mick
