Bancyffordd 5/7 - a good variety
A couple of villagers came round this morning to look at the moths in the trap. A good splash of colour from several showy species along with the first Herald. 10 Dark Spectacle was my highest count so far along with a couple of Double Line, Double Dart and a single Miller. I trapped a Clay with no apparent post median black dots and found the MothsUK website handy regarding the male Clay having a dark patch on its underside around the legs. Highlight for me was discovering my first ever Scare Burnished Brass.
I forgot to add this, Epagoge grotiana, I think.
