Cyphon padi (Linnaeus, 1758)
This is another small species with a scattering of records in the county and probably best found by sweeping the vegetation surrounding ponds and water courses etc. There are a number of other (very similar) Cyphon species, so identification is difficult from photographs and best achieved by having a specimen under the microscope.
