Rosy Rustic Time
Summer's usually well advanced when Rosy Rustic makes its first appearance, but this one has jumped the gun. Other notables in the small actinic trap this morning were 2 FFY Double-striped pugs (I missed out on the 1st generation), Beautiful China-mark, Sharp-angled Carpet, Double Dart, and two gelechids:
My take on these is: on the left, Caryocolum tricolorella (fairly certain), on the right Bryotropha senectella (not so sure).
If I trap again this week it will probably be with the small actinic which was reasonably productive last night, it's less hassle than the MV and doesn't attract wasps!
