Llansteffan Moths

I put the trap out on the 15th thinking that it was a bit chilly, but I would try anyway, as the opportunities are getting less for me at the moment.
14 LY Underwing, 1 Lesser Yellow Underwing, Knot Grass, 3x Brimstone, 4x Flame Shoulder, Rosy Rustic, Spectacle, 4x Setaceous HC, 1 Heart & Dart, a Blood-vein,  a Silver Y, a Dusky Thorn, a Garden Carpet, a Double-striped Pug (that I nearly broke my neck trying to get it off the wall at 10foot high), Straw Dot, 2x Rusty Dot Pearl, 2x Small Square-spot, 6x LBBY Underwing and a partridge in a pear tree, silly me it's not xmas yet.
Anyway some I can't id help as always needed please.

I may have caught this one before but I can't find any previous info on it.


  1. Possibly Acrobasis advenella (or even marmorea) for no1. No2 may be Phycitodes sp.
    Best to wait though for Sam, George or Barry to comment!

  2. Yes, No.1 advenella; No. 2 Phycitodes binaevella (4 black dots, so not maritima); No. 3 Cydia splendana.

  3. Thanks both what would I do without you!
