Found this morning above my 15W UV trap?

A nice find but commoner than they were and if your'e going to find one, it will probably be where you are......

'established across a wide area of N London from Ealing, East to the Lea Valley', Waring.

Not just N London.

I get them in SW London, both as adults and (more frequently) as larvae.

I think they are probably doing well anywhere in the Thames BAsin.
