A fly believed to be extinct for 150 years has been found in Devon.
The insect, Rhaphium pectinatum, has been recorded only once in the UK before in 1868. It was discovered alive and well and living on Devon Wildlife Trust’s Old Sludge beds nature reserve, near Exeter.
I took a recent trip to Devon Wildlife Trust’s Old Sludge Beds nature reserve on the outskirts of Exeter specifically to look for flies. Imagine my surprise when I examined my catch that evening to find it included a fly that was presumed extinct in Britain, not having been seen for 147 years!
Definitely one to add to the list of Devon specialities.
Finding the fly here demonstrates the importance of the work the Devon Wildlife Trust does looking after these unusual and special habitats.
Some people may think the only good fly is a dead one but they are important they are for food for other creatures, pollination... and recycling waste.
