Micros in Burry Port

Tachystola acroxantha seems quite firmly established near my garden, so when I found three in the trap I decided to go for an ambitious triple moth shot. Of course they legged it, though I relocated two in the conservatory.

 I also found two Blastobasis lacticolella/decolorella - a bit different from my usual adustella visitors.
And finally a micro I couldn't identify - is it a Crambid? Or Diurnea? I don't know.


  1. Well done Adam at `Tachystola HQ, Carms` - I would have loved to get Tachystola last night, as it`s a moth that I`ve never seen - yet I`m only about a mile or so from you! Your Blastobasis lacticolella looks ok to me and the last moth is indeed a crambid...I`d go for Eudonia angustea by the look of the markings etc.

  2. Thanks Ian, angustea looked totally anonymous to me yesterday morning
