Insects

The Isles of Scilly has plenty of wonderful insects from the bizarre to the beautiful - take time to see what is under your feet.

Some are migrants, others have hitched a lift like the New Zealand land-hopper thought to have arrived on consignments of plants, whilst others have been in Scilly for so long that they have become unique, such as the Scilly bee a sub speices of the Moss-carder bee.
