Long-term stalwarts will recall my horrific `moths in tubes` photos and here are some more! I hope to get better photos when I get a chance, but they do show some moths of interest. The first one, when initially seen, made me think of Anarsia spartiella (a gorse and broom feeder) but the strong striations on the wings suggest something considerably more interesting - possibly Anarsia lineatella or A. innoxiella, both rare adventives. However, it may be just an oddly-marked spartiella; a plum tree next door offers some hope that it is not (plums are one of the food-plants of the rarer species). The specimen will shortly be in the post to the National Gelechiid Scheme Organiser for his expert perusal.
The 2nd photo shows Argolamprotes micella, a raspberry/blackberry feeder of SW Britain, first recorded a few years back by Mel at Llansteffan and subsequently by Sam at Pembrey (I think); I also had one at Pwll last year. Last night, however, I had six in the trap.
The final photo is a poor one of one of my Pwll specialities (it has only been recorded there and is virtually annual) - the elm feeding pyralid Rhodophaea formosa.
