SP5595ish Aquatics

Haven't actually found anything new today, but I have managed to work out / key out a few bits that I found in the Brook yesterday plus I'd forgotten to include a moth larva. I've uploaded a few photos to my blog of some of yesterday's stuff.

River Limpet - didn't know such things existed until this morning

Some sort of Mayfly larva - loads of these

Large Red Damselfly

Triplax aenea

Empis opaca

This one is not yet confirmed - I think it may be Lesteva longoelytrata
