Hello all,
I first thought it was Peleteria rubescens, but somehow, I doubt it now that I have looked closer. Any opinion ?
10 mm approx. Reserve naturelle de Sclaigneaux, Belgium, on sandy soil.
August 7th.
Thanks for your help
Philippe

Thanks for your reply Theo. Now, if you ask for bad photos, I'm your man Wink (I'am having big trouble with my eyesight at the moment, and have almost given up macrophotography untill it's mended) Here is one, very bad indeed, but from a slightly different angle.
There were two individuals sitting in the high grass in a slightly shaded place. The biotope around it is generally a dry heathland, but this is in a kind of hollow.

It was an inode issues. In practise, I think it means there were more files on the server than the system catered for. The limit has been doubled and we should be save for quite some time.

I'm relieved you managed to fix the site, Paul! You had us a bit worried there Wink

Or a write right in the temp folder.

Error 122 is probably a full disk or over quote.
