hi, can someone help me with this one? I was hoping for a Large Wainscot but it seems more like the Bulrush - but again doesn't quite fit.

  1. Hello Mark, your specimen seems to be missing the semi-circle of small, faint dots which make up what passes for an outer cross-line but otherwise looks a perfect fit for Large Wainscot (it isn't Bulrush Wainscot, which is generally darker with obvious black streaking and has a dotted fringe). Large Wainscot seems to be having quite a good season - except here around Westcott!

  2. excellent, a new one for the list! I looked at one of my other books and saw a specimen in there without the dots too. thanks!
