I have recenty been completing a study investigating invetebrates in a lowland wheatfield. Now that I have samples I am trying to identify the range of species down to order and in some cases families. I would be very greatful if I could have some help on the identification of this particular specimen:
Information about the location:
The surveys took place once a month between july and september in a lowland arable farm in Essex. The pitfall traps were placed between a hawthorn/blackthorn hedgerow and a wheat field. Half of the samples were from a 1 year old wildflower buffer strip. In a flower survey I found this contained mostly false oat, with some meadow thistle, wild carrot, ribwort plantain, birds foot trefoil, smaller cats tail, scentless mayweed and yarrow.
