A fascinating find in the garden late last week - the box bug, Gonocerus acuteangulatus, once regarded as one of the rarest insects in Britain. This medium-sized (about 10 mm) brown leafbug is a smaller, slimmer and slightly more elegant relative
it was ... a large dog? Or maybe... I still have the hand-written welcome note left by our host on the table just inside the lobby "Richard, be aware that a medium-sized unaggressive bear is in the area. He won't bother you and is just mooching about."
