Two traps run overnight on the 1st produced 107 spp. (~470 individuals), highlights included Eudonia delunella 3, Waved Carpet 4 (photo 1), Blomer's Rivulet 3 (photo 3), Bilberry Pug 1 (photo 4), Clouded Magpie 2, Satin Beauty 3, Brussels Lace 7, Black Arches 1, Gold Spangle 1 (photo 5), Small Mottled Willow 2 (photo 2), Double Line 12, Green Arches 40 (the most abundant species) and Oak Nycteoline 2.
Finally, this may just be an extreme form of Celypha lacunana, but it was smaller and much more well marked in comparison with the typical form. Any suggestions would be most welcome. First shot a phone pic before it lost some of its scales in the pot.
