Machynys Micros - part 3
Some more photos from Tuesday (19/7):
Above: Syncopacma sp. I`ve already bumped this one off, as I recall that you need to check the underwing pattern (or similar) to det. it to species
Above: Mompha ochracella, associated with greater willowherb.
Above: I`m unsure of this one. Is it Cochylidia rupicola perhaps?
Above: another problem specimen. Suggestions?
Above: likewise, which one is this Pammene - populana? I caught this both at Machynys and at my Pwll home trap on Tuesday night. I`ve had it confirmed by Sam from a specimen at the latter site in 2015.
Above: another micro that was about on Tuesday night. It looks like a cork moth Nemapogon cloacella to me.
That`s it for now. As remarked previously, I`ve still got some micros from Machynys to check (or re-check) but I`ll blog if anything interesting turns up.
It looks ok`ish for trapping tonight, but I`ll be having a rest - good luck to anyone who traps.
