plume from Ynys Las, help please

I have been looking at Yarrow and Tansy, palps clear of face fur when I look through a glass as per Yarrow but leg striped between spurs (although not a clear cut change) as per Tansy.
Its wl is 10mm. so a bit small for those.
I then considered Crescent Plume.  Plenty of Restharrow in bloom where I found it.
Sorry poor pic.  I still have it as it was already without one hind leg so maybe get a better pic tomorrow unless some one tells me which it is on this evidence.


  1. Hi Liz, looks like Marasmarcha lunaedactyla to my eyes, not sure of the English name.

  2. Yes, Crescent plume. Thankyou!

  3. We had at least a dozen Crescent at Ynyslas last night Liz, they were kicking up all over the place....still counting and ID'ing last night's catch!!
    A few for you too Peter.

  4. Lovely, look forward to receiving them. I shall start on the ones you gave me either tomorrow or Thursday.
