Came to light left on overnight. 4mm grid. Photos without and with flash: the first photo shows the actual colour better. The markings seem to be too intense to be the Beaded Chestnut which Townsend and Waring suggest as a confusion species.

Intrigued by the ruler/scale you've used which is great - is it just on a ruler or a specialist piece of kit? If so where can I get one?

Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:

Grid Reference Reader

It's a Grid Reference Reader. Credit card sized. It has a 2mm grid for 1:50000 maps and a 4mm grid for 1:25000 maps. The one I have was printed for Biological Recording in Scotland, I don't know if they are available to purchase: I was given mine at a biological recording seminar.
