Back in October I spent a very interesting day learning a bit about lichens at Dinefwr, Llandeilo courtesy of Plantlife. Along the way I acquired a leaf of Hart's-tongue fern with Psychoides workings on the underside. This was in a pot in my unheated garden shed waiting for summer but I happened to notice a moth in it two days ago. This turned out to be a worn filicivora presumably fooled by the warm days of Christmas. Hopefully I will get a fresh one for a decent picture later in the year.
Larval workings on Hart's-tongue fern.
Psychoides filicivora seen 2nd January but must have emerged several days earlier.
