Grammoptera sp (garden)

Three species of Grammoptera occur in Britain of which one. G.ruficornis (Fab.) is widespread and common. G.abdominalis (Stephens)(Notable A) is a very local southern English species mainly associated with Oak in broad-leaved woodland. G.ustulata (Schaller)(RDB3) is also a very local insect of woodland and wood pasture with records from Surrey, Berkshire, and south Hampshire and also scattered individual records further north; Gloucester, Cambridge, mid Wales and south Yorkshire. All our species occur from April until July or Augus

I am going through all the photos I have taken this year to pick up the ones I have missed.
