I had a really enjoyable morning trapping, plenty of commoner species and these three that had my nose in the book for a while! Any opinions would be great!

Brussels Lace?

Garden Carpet?

Pale Oak Beauty? Annoyingly I couldn't rotate this image for some reason!

I also caught what I'm pretty sure is a oblique carpet, but was unable to get a photo of it unfortunately. I had a good old stare at it in case it flew when I moved it into a position to photograph it. Sure enough it flew! The book says they're thinly distributed , are there many records in Carmarthenshire?



  1. Good first attempt Rob. First two are correct but the last looks a mottled beauty to me. Keep up the good work and well done.

  2. That's great, thanks for your help!

  3. I get quite a few Oblique Carpet here in Saron, Llandysul.
