We've had at least 3 blog posts about Four-dotted Footman in Carms this week, and I had one here last night as well. This wetland species is uncommon but pretty widespread in the county (map below). This is in stark contrast to the situation in Glamorgan, where the Moths of Glamorgan reveals it to be almost totally restricted to Gower, with just a couple of records further east.
Other species caught here (porch light, as usual) were 3 Eudonia delunella (rubbing my nose in it, following my misidentifying Chris' individual as E mercurella), 1 Waved Carpet, 1 Broken-barred Carpet, 1 Cinnabar and my first 2 Uncertain of the year.
