hello

Wondering why I found a single Xanthogramma in Edinburgh this summer and someone I asked at Edinburgh Uni suggested it may be a migrant.
There's not many Scottish records but seems to be a few and even a hint it may have bred (?) Can anyone help with info ?

much appreciated

David

This is a single record from near Pitlochry in the 1990s and then other records from the area east of Dumfries. It may well be resident but at exceedingly low density and there is just a chance that it is expanding its range. You need to check which species as X. pedissequum has been split into two species - pedissequum SS. and X. stackelbergi
