Can't find anything to match

Can't find anything to match that amongst British species.

Of course, with longhorns, there is always the possibility of non-native species that have emerged from imported timber.

Thanks Matt, I think you're spot on. I've changed the name so it should bring up other images.

Mike, the images at the bottom of the page are linked to the "most likely ID", not the title of the observation - so they come up whatever - you can see them change if you revise an observation ID at times.
