Mangled Specimen from Morfa Dyfryn.

Hello,

I have attached some images of a small mangled specimen from Morfa Dyfryn during the Snowdonia field meeting this year. Obviously, it would be difficult to get this through the family key but I am hoping the wing pattern might be enough for someone to suggest either a family, genus or species.

Regards,
Andrew.

With a wing pattern like that, and no pre-apical bristle on the tibiae, I'd start with Pallopteridae.

Brilliant, thanks Tony. I will see if I can get anywhere with it now.

UPDATE : It keyed out as Palloptera umbellatarum. Thanks for the helpful nudge, Tony.
