Description:

Of the umbelliferous plants on our Reserve, Common Hogweed has received much more attention as an environment for invertebrates than has Cow or Hedge Parsley. I am wondering if this might change if one looked more for smaller creatures. Here is a small insect on Cow Parsley* and I am wondering if a name can be put to it.
