In 1980 I spent a week pursuing entomology in East Sussex and managed to discover two insects that were previously unknown in Britain. The more dramatic of the two was the French Wasp Dolichovespula media, found in Friston Forest. It was probably carried over to this country by ferry and has now spread over much of Britain. The second discovery was a small hoverfly called Neoascia interrupta found at Ditchling Common. This plate combines the illustrations used in the two publications that formally added them to the British list.
