One to look out for

Yesterday Gordon Jarvis sent me this picture of a longhorn beetle which he found in Peasmarsh on 10th June. It is a large black longhorn (Stictoleptura scutellata, identification confirmed by Peter Hodge, Sussex beetle recorder) an uncommon species with larvae that feed in the deadwood of broad-leaved trees, where they can take up to four years to mature. Peter also confirmed that this is the first record for Sussex, so a good find and one to look out for in the future.
