Re Rhagium bifasciatum
Adrian Fowles sent me the following........"The only Pembs record we have for R. bifasciatum is Stackpole in Nov 2002 . It is a common species in Wales and its 'absence' from Pembs really just reflects the fact that there hasn't been any resident coleopterist in the county for centuries! Visiting coleopterists nearly always focus on the coast. I'd guess that NMW must have had bifasciatum at Ty Canol when they ran malaise traps in the 90s. It must also be present inPengelli Forest".
