Rare Wasp Sighting in Worcester
In the News
A dog walker was stunned after spotting a wasp that has only been seen three times in the last 100 years.
Cathryn Dhonau stumbled across the UK's rarest wasp near her home in Worcester while with her dog Chance.
The 46-year-old took a 'one-in-a-million' snap of the bug, which has a distinct red colour.
Experts later identified the species of Ichneumon wasp - a group of around 32 subfamilies that contain around 2,500 species of parasitoid wasps - as the Agrothereutes abbreviatus.
