General comments:
Adventive.

We have a three records of this rare immigrant for Hertfordshire: One was seen flying around a kitchen in Hitchin on 18th November 2000 and was found dead the next day (D. Hudson reported in Atropos, number 12, page 69), the second was found at a Sainsbury's in Watford in December 2013 (Allan Hall) and a third from Stevenage on 3 September 2020 (Ben Sale). All are in places that suggest emergence from imported produce seems likely.
