Pembrey. Thursday 18th May

A morning searching for signs of Caryocolum blandulella with Ian Morgan and Steve Palmer. This tiny, 1 mm long, nymph-like creature was the only life in one spun Little Mouse-ear seedhead just in case anyone knows about these things. Also these three other common moths.

Mystery ex seedhead of Little Mouse-ear. Just 1 mm long


  1. Pristine photos as usual Chris. Your last photo looks like an aphid of some sort?

  2. Thanks, Ian, and very good to see you.
