NBG friday night
I ran a trap at the National Botanic Garden on friday night for their pollinator weekend. BC also ran a couple elsewhere on site and our catches differed slightly.
As expected the weather depressed the catch compared to recently - only about 35 species including the following gelechid(?) that I can't id.
Most frequent moth was ruby tiger (28) closely followed by Agriphila straminella (27) with highlights being female ghost moth, iron, pale and pebble prominents, sallow kitten, pebble hook-tip, gold spot, antler (FFY), small rufous, Agriphila selasella and a migrant in the form of a diamond-back.
