Flew past me and landed on a dead tree stump and seemed to proceed to oviposit. Very large, body was around an inch or so long. Also noticed three false scorpions (Pseudoscorpiones)clung to its legs?? Any thoughts welcome!
Thanks for that Amadan, it was a pretty spectacular insect and I was struggling for an ID. There is surprisingly little info on the species, any more info would be appreciated. Is there a discernible difference shown in these photos that would rule out T nigricornis?
the species nominated is the one in Chinery. He's usually quite good at noting that there are similar species, which he doesn't with this one.But the NBN map says both are present in that neck of the woods.
Perhaps a generic-only identification is more appropriate.
