OK, so enthusiasm got the better of methodical pragmatics!  I naively assumed that NBN and the others would recognise and offer synonyms …. ha!

Phaenoserphus (or perhaps Phaneroserphus, depending on whose taxonomy you believe) calcar is probably the commonest proctotrupid in the land!”

Just checked the pseudonym via NBN and whilst it is indeed a common beast, it’s not recorded from either Thorne or Hatfield Moors so at least it’s still a new site record and I still stand by the view that Thorne & Hatfield Moors SSSI are under-recorded sites, particularly in the more unusual entomological disciplines, similarly lower plants etc.
