Scalloped Hook-tip at last

At last I've managed to photograph Scalloped Hook-tip.  Whenever I've caught them before and potted one up for a photo, I've then had to release it to free up the pot for something needing ID.  Not really a photo worth waiting for though!

The spare pot was because last night's 47 spp of macro were pretty mundane, with autumn heralded by Feathered Gothic, Square-spot Rustic and Rosy Rustic.  The 24 spp of micro included lots of tinies, like Aspilapteryx tringipenella, Digitivalva pulicariae, 4 Mompha raschkiella and two species of Phyllonorycter.  A Ptycholomoides aeriferanus, recently added to the Carms list, indicates there's a resident population in the Larches of Brechfa Forest.

  1. I just like the shape of scalloped hook tips...just like leaves. Pity I don`t get many of them!
