There have been  a number of reports in the UK press over the last few days
about the discovery of a colony of Blair's Wainscot (Sedenia buetnerii)
at a secret location in Dorset. Teh moth was formerly only known in the UK from
a site on the Isle of Wight where the colony was destroyed in the 1950's.

Many of the reports have made reference to the new Goverment in Britain led
by another Blair and to the pinkish streaks on the moths wings, a comment on
the political "colour" of the new administration.

Rather appropriately the moth feeds on a sedge and the British Prime minister
represents the people of Sedgefield in our parliament.
