becoming established

Western Conifer Seed Bug is a recent coloniser in Britain, and seems likely to become established. Yours is the latest in the year that I've heard about. For more info see:

That was quick! It certainly looks like my specimen. Thanks for replying. (I wasn't aware of the British Bugs website - but have now bookmarked it!)

additional ID

Hi Mike, glad you're enjoying the British Bugs site, it is very good.

Just to say that there is no need to add a second ID unless you disagree with the first - if you agree it's best to just click on "I agree". For more info see:
