Cwmllwyd 21 July 2014
I put the actinic trap on the edge of the wet woodland "jungle" last night and found 73 moths of 37 species this morning. There were several first Cwmllwyd records, including the following species:
Poplar Grey - a good stand of aspens can be found on adjacent higher ground.
Orthotelia sparganella - lots of branched bur-reed in the wetland. Only 6 previously recorded in Carms; last reported in 2008?
The rather strange Honeysuckle Moth Ypsolopha dentella.
