Imago. Female. Stokkerup Dam. Egg-laying.
Bit of a surprise to find this rare species. I was looking for Small Spreadwing which had been found a few days earlier in another pond at this locality. That one I didn't find, but I do not complain to have found this good species in stead, which has only started to show up in Denmark during recent years.
Without my knowing other individuals had been found, also a few days earlier, in a small pond, Stille vand, further south in the park, by Ib Fagerlund, why this animal is an addition to the total.
I visited the spot again a few days later, but couldn't find it. Nor at Stille vand did I find any. Will be interesting to see how they show up next year. Hoping to find one on Amager, along with the smaller cousin...
