Euclaybites at Cnwc


The only previous Carmarthenshire records of Eucalybites aurogutella are of mines in two places at Cnwc-y-llwyn, Brechfa in autumn 2009. I have searched our St John's-wort subsequently without finding any more mines, so was chuffed to find the micro I noticed fluttering over the flowerbed on Sunday afternoon was this distinctive little orange-spotted moth.

  1. That`s a distinctive moth, Sam. I`ve just checked what the leaf-mine looks like and will keep a look-out.
