New native species in Britain

A longhorn beetle new to Britain has been discovered in Scotland. The new species, Pogonocherus caroli, is rare in Europe and is believed to be an overlooked resident species in Scotland, rather than a new incomer. It was found by Martin Rejzek, former organiser of the Longhorn Beetle Recording Scheme. Martin and Max Barclay of the Natural History Museum have published the discovery in The Coleopterist - for more information go to:
