Several of these small sphaerocerids turned up in a sample from July 2021, grazed grassland (ponies, cattle), Sussex, UK.
Other species in the same sample: Leptocera nigra, Alloboborus pallifrons, Pteremis fenestralis, Coproica acutangula, Spelobia ochripes, Philocoprella quadrispina, Chaetopodella scutellaris, Ischiolepta pusila, I. denticulata, and Lotobia pallidiventris.

I just can't seem to make sense of these.

Can anyone shed a light on this?
