Double-striped Pug?

Still February, just, but this beast was sunning itself on a window frame yesterday afternoon!

I'm guessing Double-striped, but please put me straight. If so, shouldn't be flying yet?

Thanks, David


  1. Hi David,
    Yes, that's Double-striped Pug. Records from March onwards are commonplace nowadays, earlier not so often but I did have one in the garden on 8th February 2020. They over-winter in the pupal stage so any warm spell at this time of year is quite likely to tempt them into emergence.

  2. Thanks, Dave - great to see one so fresh - pugs seem to get worn so quickly - and then I find them impossible!
