A new garden species, Trypoxylon attenuatum [1] ! It is an uncommon species in the Netherlands, although it seems a lot rarer in the garden after numerous attempt to catch a male that than turned out to be T. figulus.

This female flew inside the house, but after a smooth photo session she was set free again.
