2022-06-05 Søholt Storskov, Lolland, Denmark
Imago. Male. A difficult species to get this year. Now being past the peak season, and most people have only seen one or two individuals. The Aage V. Jensen foundation has bought large parts of the forest with the intent to improve the conditions for exactly this species, being the only locality where to find it in Denmark! Hopefully they are not too late.
I walked in the forest all day, 8 hours and 14 kilometers and only found this single male. And I only saw it briefly, which is also reflected by the mediocre photos. But they are good enough to confirm that I got myself a lifer!
