Great photo Matt. Also seems

Great photo Matt. Also seems to have pale annulations on the antennae which is meant to be a P.maritima feature?? By the way it should be Petrobius brevistylis which would link to NBN map etc (it seems to be repeatedly misspelt). I like the common name Sea Wall Bristletail :where does that come from?
