    Ectopsocus petersi

    I'm sitting at the computer entering records of observations into NatureSpot. An annoying little fly is flying around and keeps landing on the screen. I take a closer look at it. More...

    It looks like a Moth Fly, very difficult to identify to species level, but to be sure I pull out the camera and take some photos of it. I load the photos onto the computer and I can see that it's not a Moth Fly but a Barklouse.

    I look it up on NatureSpot. It's Ectopsocus petersi. I enter the record into NatureSpot. While I'm doing that a little fly lands on the screen. It's not Ectopsocus petersi, this one's a bit darker in colour. I pull out the camera and take some photos of it.

    This could take a while....
