Singa hamata (Clerck): the first Welsh record by Kefyn Catley

From The Newsletter No. 46 July 1986

An adult female Singa hamata was taken on 13th October 1985 on Cors Caron N.C.C. Reserve, Tregaron, Dyfed (Nat. Grid Ref. SN 683622). This species seems to be well-established on extensive heather tracts on both the south-east and north-east bogs of Cors Caron, for subsequently six females with their characteristic egg-sacs were found. I thank the Reserve Warden for his help and advice and Dr Peter Merrert for confirming the identification.
