Can't find any images of

Can't find any images of Idiocera sexguttata to compare it with but it does look like a Nephrotoma. Six-spotted Cranefly is very rare, a BAP species with very restricted habitat and distribution: mainly Gower and New Forest http://www.dipteristsforum.org.uk/wiki/bap:new:idiocera_sexguttata
