Cwmllwyd 13 August 2016
47 species turned up at the MV trap last night, mostly common macros, although a couple of Oblique Carpets and two more Blue-bordered Carpets were good to see. Pick of the bunch was this 'ere Ear Moth sp., who's full identity will remain a mystery. Here are two views of the same individual.
There were a few micros, too, including this rather fine Chequered Fruit-tree Tortrix,
a first for me (even though said to be a common moth) was this Carcina quercana,
and another common moth, The Tortricid Epinotia nisella f. decorana.
