Inspired by Chris's photos of Micropterix aruncella (below), I searched several flower laden hawthorns at Cwmllwyd, but there was no sign of the micro. Nearby, however, in the long grass, I found Glyphipterix simpliciella - Cocksfoot Moth. I apologise for the poor quality pictures; my excuse is that the beast is only 3.5mm long and it was very active!


  1. What do you mean, poor quality pictures, Steve? They're fantastic!

  2. Thanks very much, Chris, but any decent photos I post are courtesy of Nikon's engineers - even their little compacts (like mine) have top quality lenses.
