Thanks, Martin. That's a useful tip about editing in Office. It is actually easier than the system I have which I paid for!

I found several examples of a black fungus lying around in some local woodland (mostly birch and oak). I am not at all sure that the black colour is natural - could they simply be dead toadstools? I...

You could well be right - although I thought it looked rather long and thin. But it would explain why I couldn't find it in the hoverfly book ;-)

Where will it end?!
The only prob is that for every new species you can tick there are more that you haven't seen (in my case, anyway). Azure-winged magpie has also been split.

Thanks, Aeshna,
Here's another photo. I don't like it as much but perhaps it shows the parent bug better.

I found this really small shieldbug on a silver birch in our garden. It seems to be sitting on eggs. Sorry the photo is a bit dark - it was evening. I assume it's a common species.

We tried to get a sharper pic. But the overnight rain has not improved its appearance! Whatever it is, it's a nice surprise after living at this address for 15 years.
