Mompha terminella

Here's a slightly different view of the Mompha terminella which shows the striking colours and white antennae tips. Sam says this is only the second adult record for the county, but it seems it may be under-recorded possibly as it is quite small.

  1. Nice photo, as always, Chris. I forgot to say last time, but your 60+ total of species recorded was impressive. Was your daughter`s home in the SN41 or SN51 part of Pontyberem?

  2. Thanks Ian.Top of SN 50 10. Seems a good moth spot.
