More beating in the far west

A couple of brief daytime stops in the Clundwern/Llandisillio area added a few more species to SN1123 and SN1118.  Highlights were Barred Straw, Twinspot Carpet, Pammene aurana and Epinotia signatana from the former, and a Paraswammerdamia lutarea from the latter.

The white head and grey wings typify the 'swammerdamia' group of Yponomids.  This Paraswammerdamia lutarea is characterised by having a few white dots near the wing tip.  It was fluttering around a Hawthorn bush, and has 20 previous Carms records.

  1. Useful as always, Sam....and some useful records from the hardly-recorded far NW too.
