Cwmllwyd 19 October 2018

Only 40 moths of 14 species were trapped at Cwmllwyd last night (19th October), but some were of interest, along with one that's a bit of a puzzle. Some pix:

 Merveille du Jour

 Red Sword-grass

 Black Rustic - an Autumn favourite of mine,

 The greenest Red-green Carpet I've ever seen!

Could this be Eana osseana? It would be very late, if it is. Flight season (Sterling & Parsons) late June - August, into September and October in Scotland. Seen here once before - August 2016.


  1. That's Diurnia lipsiella - nice record!

  2. Indebted once again, George - grateful thanks.

  3. ...and another moth that I`d like to see - a good record Steve. I hope to target local woodlands in autumn for Diurnea, but not this year, alas.
