Nephrotoma for ID

Submitted by colinleb on

Is this Nephrotoma flavescens please?  Bedfordshire.  13 June 2022.     


Yes, Collin, you are right.  The lack stigma spot, the strong markings on the sides of the thorax and the broad black mark on the head identify this.  There are similar in markings to N submaculosa and the males have a different inner clasper.  I don't know if the females have similar ovipositors or not.  N flavescens is common and I get it in my garden.
