Black Lacewing - Nothochrysa capitata

This large black lacewing was on top of my moth trap early morning on Tuesday 4th August and identified from web resource. It is now with our county recorder, Melissa, and I am advised it is a first for county. Apologies for the in-the-pot photo as I did not dare let it out, presume Melissa can capture something better. It seems to be a distinctive beastie so not easy to overlook by the curious garden naturalist...
