7.5 mm, Arncliffe Yorkshire UK, 5 June 2011

I found this in a moribund state indoors. Gregor's key leads me to H. impuncta, but according to the description the fronto-orbital plates should be touching. The paired spots on t2&3 look strong when lit from behind, but less so in the photo. I couldn't get much reassurance from the genitalia, but they look as close to H. impuncta as to any of the other spp. illustrated.

I think about Helina impuncta too, but can't confirm, as I have too less experience (I'm just interested)Smile Very common at the moment here too. Regards, Niels.

This is an odd one. As far as I know, with prst acr., it can only be Helina impuncta or Helina quadrata (rarely in H. lasiophthalma one can find 1-2 elongated prst acr.).
With 1+2 ks and bare eyes, I can't see anything exept H. impuncta.
Stephane.

Thanks Stephane! I'm glad I was right to be puzzled.

The sentence translates as 'in the very wet and decayed wood of an old elm tree'.

In English we say "stand of trees". Maybe you have a French version of the same phrase.
