Tag Archives: Black-striped Longhorn Beetle

Meadow Brown and Marbled White, Rutland

Yesterday I visited Bloody Oaks Quarry, which as usual proved a haven for butterflies including double figures of Silver-washed Fritillary. Amongst others, I also saw Brown Argus and Small Heath.

This Black-striped Longhorn Beetle was the second I have seen at this site – the other was in 2015.

Other notable butterflies seen locally over the past week have included White-letter Hairstreak and Holly Blue.

I’m unsure about the local status of Giant Woodwasp – this one in Oakham – can anyone advise? Note its size in relation to the brick!
