Red-barred Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpets are said to be rare among Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpets. So when I found 3 Carpets in Wednesday's catch and 2 hard black bars and one red I thought I'd got both species. But turns out they were 3 Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpets, all males.

Another Small Phoenix was nice, quite a different-looking beast from the last one.

One caddisfly proved to be a new species for me, Hydropsyche pellucidula. Others included Glyphotaelius pellucidus, 4 Limnephilus auriculas and Limnephilus sparsus.
