A minor problem





Nearly 100 moths last night at Troserch Farm (I'll have to try somewhere different!!) with 25 species, including this little minor chappie
Any ideas??

  1. Looks like a case of 'Minor sp.' Colin. Jon advised me some time ago that if I was ever in any doubt about a Marbled Minor type I was to use the general category, which is provided for on his Excel record sheet - I don't know whether you use this for your recording. It goes for some other closely-related species, too, like Common Rustic/Lesser Common Rustic.

    I did try and dissect his genitals but the little s**** wouldn't keep still!

    1. I tried it once, too, but it made mine ache so I stopped!
