Moth Night in Burry Port

An overcast night produced FFY Dog's Tooth and Ingrailed Clay in an unspectacular Trap. I was pleased to pick up what looks like my first Dusky Brocade.
I also found a Cnephasia species - these are notoriously hard to identify, but the closest I can get is conspersana - any ideas?

  1. I had a Cnephasia just like this one a few days ago, Adam, and it got recorded as Cnephasia sp., as has every Grey Tortrix I've caught. My understanding is that dissection is needed to determine species.

  2. Thanks Chris, they look a difficult bunch.
