harvestman

thanks for the rapid ID! looking at the EOL map, it looks as though this is a first record for Cheltenham? or is the mapping not up to date?

NBN map doesn't show any

NBN map doesn't show any other records for Cheltenham, just a scatter through Gloucestershire. Does this mean it is quite rare, or just that not many people bother recording arachnids?!
