I thought this was a moth but I'm told it is more likely to be some sort of fly. It's about 15mm long. Seen on grassland near Holme wood,Peterborough last friday.
No interactions present.
not a moth, but a member of another ancient family of insects. The name refers to the curled-up tails of the males. They're tricky to pin down to species, but some on iSpot have commented in earlier posts about how to do it.
Their ancestors are thought to be amongst the first insects acting as plant pollinators.
