I love the name "Fine Streaked Bugkin", where does that come from?

But I think this is L. dolobrata, compare with a very similar image here:

Yes happy to go with that ID as the photo on the suggested site looks like my bug. It was a guess and the photos on the UK Bugs site werent as definate.

I am very dissapointed though that mine isnt a "Bugkin" which I think was the suggested name it came up with on here I think when I put in the latin name! Still looks like a good record though in our underrecorded county of D&G.

Thanks

Valerie
