If it is Leptoglossus...

...then it's a really interesting record. Although there are loads of records of adults, so far there are few examples of juveniles in the UK, so it's worth trying to confirm this if possible.

Yes I think it dropped on me

Yes I think it dropped on me as I was sitting beneath a pine tree.

Sounds likely...

Thanks for that. Leptoglossus seems rather likely, then - could you contact Tristan Bantock via: http://britishbugs.org.uk/recording.html
and see what he thinks?
