Ticking Along

Marpissa muscosa

Things have been ticking along nicely in the last couple of weeks, despite the poor weather. While I am still struggling to run my moth trap and the technical term for butterfly numbers is 'pants' there have been plenty of other things to keep me interested. Spider records have included more Pellenes tripunctatus on the Beach Reserve (I am recording this weekly to find out at what times of the year it occurs here) and Marpissa muscosa at Castle Water. This latter has been photographed for RX several times before but it one of those species which I think always deserves another showing! 

Cymindis axillaris

I have also recorded several more of the rare weevils Limobius mixtus at Castle Water and Mogulones geographicus on the Beach Reserve, while a new one for me was the notable ground-beetle Cymindis axillaris near Wader Pool hide.
