General comments:

The only acceptable records are from the Rothamsted Estate at Harpenden on 23rd August 1990 (Riley, 1999) and my garden in Bishops Stortford, a male on 10th August 1997. A record for Berkhamsted in 1945 by J. H. Bell (Fryer, 1948) is not thought to have been named by dissection and no voucher can be traced. It is omitted from the map - even though it may be correct.
