You may remember the great news I had when I found this beetle (opposite) Ancistronycha abdominalis ( Blue Soldier Beetle) at Caldene fields on the 14/6/2021.
Because the beetle is uncommon I sent my observation to IRecords for clarification.
I have just received conformation from Michael Geiser NH Museum of IRecords that the sighting has been accepted!
According to the latest NBN Atles data there are only 209 UK records for this Beetle.
So this is an excellent record for our URBAN wildlife area.
