Dark Dagger and Grey Dagger can only be differentiated by genital inspection (!). Both are common, Dark Dagger less so in the north of the UK. They both start flying in mid May, the Dark Dagger stopping in July while the Grey Dagger continues through August. Both may fly again in September and October.
