A recent photo of the slender groundhopper /Tetrix subulata/ at its newly discovered Scottish stronghold on lowland heath at the threatened An Camas Mòr site in Strathspey.  BSCG is grateful to Buglife (the Invertebrate Conservation Trust ) and the UK Orthopteran recording scheme  for assistance with identification of this find.  So far this year this species has only been recorded on the ACM site in Strathspey but the first find was at Boat of Garten in 2008 and finds now considered to be this species have also been made since then at the Mossie Grantown -on-Spey and at the threatened School Wood site in Nethybridge.
