Jordanathrix nr superba
This species resembles but is distinct from Dicyrtomina superba from New Zealand. Thought to be a relatively recent introduction to the UK, first recorded about 10 years ago. This species has a patch of dark pigment on the abdomen and is similar in appearance to D. ornata but the colour of the eyepatch is much paler (with dark ocelli) than the all-dark eyepatch of D. ornata.
Submissions need to show the colour of the eyepatch.
On the ground in damp places such as leaf litter.
All year round.
Status in Britain is difficult to determine due to lack of records.
