My new water trap

Courtesy of the soul-of-the-world, the tides and some careless tupperware husbandry I have acquired a new water trap.Found it the other day when I had a bottle of soapy water with me (doesn't everyone?) and thought it might be worth a spin. Apparently it was.


48 hours after siting it had the aforementioned two calyptrate flies, three Linyphiids, a millipede and two beetles (actually also some springtails but looked Orchesella vanilla). I spent the morning wishing I brought my sweep net out as there must be Linyphiid treasure in them thar hills.
