Leptoglossus occidentalis, St Leonards, East Sussex

This impressive Coreid bug came to my moth trap last night. I believe it's Leptoglossus occidentalis, an american species that was introduced into Italy in 1999 and has been spreading throughout Europe. It was recorded for the first time in Britain last year in Weymouth.
