NBGW

Nothing as exciting as Ian's CBGP, but 896 moths (or thereabouts!) of 157 species from 3 traps run overnight was a pretty decent return. Some of the less common species included Gold Swift 1, Map-winged Swift 1, Tinea semifulvella 1, Eidophasia messingiella 1 (I suspect there may be some dispersal going on with is species), Syncopacma taeniolella 4, Cochylimorpha straminea 1, Olindia schumacherana 1, Grapholita janthinana 1, Agriphila selasella 1, Eudonia delunella 5, Phlyctaenia stachydalis 1, Cryptoblabes bistriga 1, Common Lutestring 2, Little Emerald 1, Clay Triple-lines 4, Beautiful Carpet 1, Barred Yellow 1, Twin-spot Carpet 1, Lead-coloured Pug 1, Dingy Shell 1, Waved Carpet 10, Satin Beauty 1, Brussels Lace 16, Round-winged Muslin 2, Red-necked Footman 1, Double Line 1 & Beautiful Snout 2. I'll post one or two pics later if I ever get a chance...
...and what looks like Cydia fagiglandana (I'll post a pic for opinion soon - opinions welcome - top image in natural light, lower two with flash).

  1. Well done Barry. What a superb haul. Lead-coloured Pug has only one previous Carms record. Do you think it will have come from local woodland or further afield?

  2. Yes, a great set of records - and looking forward to your photos too.

  4. Thanks George. In response to Sam's question, the pug was among my batch of specimens I've since checked and it turned out to be Valerian, not Lead-coloured. Incidentally I have found LCPug adults are easily disturbed from the foodplant during the day, so worth having a slow wander through any decent patches of Cow-wheat you come across. Still not yet had a chance to sort out the rest of my pics...
