2-spot / harlequin

Dear kcf32
Hmmm, wasn't sure about this one. It was quite close to a definate 2 spot and was close in size but, yes, could have been a mm or so bigger.

Definite Harlequin, succinea

Definite Harlequin, succinea form with the spots largely fused. 2-spots don't have this spot pattern, and are also less dome-shaped

Thanks Richard, my daughter and I do record sightings as above - it's good to know that you've got the right species when submitting!
