Hi there, I spotted this chap in the car park recently. About 6/8cms in length hand 1-1.5 in width.
We quickly located a visual match on The Northern Myth blog where is it tentatively identified as being in the genus Urnisiella. The individuals identified online as being in the genus Urnisiella do not look like your individual in our mind. See FlickR and Superstock. At this time, we are unable to provide a conclusive identification.
Thanks for your reply. I’ll have a read of the info. I did try to get a side profile photo, but I got spotted and he flew away.
All the best
