Tachystola acroxantha in Burry Port

I trapped last night and turned up 19 species (with one geometer still in the fridge awaiting id).

In the bottom of the trap I found a tiny micro which proved surprisingly easy to identify because of it's distinctive shape and yellow trailing edge. It was poorly behaved and even with a 150 macro lens was hard to photograph, which is my excuse for a mediocre shot.
Amongst the others in the trap were a Lychnis - first for me.
And two Small Phoenix, which I've found before but include here for it's fine markings.

  1. The Tachystola is a 2nd Carms record Adam, following one near St Clears back in 2013 - so well done indeed!
