Meta species

Meta menardi hasn't been recorded from Suffolk whereas Meta bourneti has. Why haven't you added Meta as an identification under 'it might be this'? I suspect it's one or the other.

As you wish

I've had a look at Meta bourneti and it does seem to be very similar to this one, more likely than M.menardi I'd say, given the distribution.
