New moths and id challenges
A warm and cloudy night brought some new species to the trap last night as well as some welcome returners.
A gorgeous Black Arches was a very welcome return visitor.
A new macro was this Round-winged Muslin - quite an odd little moth.
Another returner was a tiny well marked noctuid, which I believe to be Cloaked Minor. Any ideas?
I was puzzled by this next moth until I understood what the dorsal view was telling me - it's not a torticid!
I believe this is Acrobasis marmorea, new to my trap!
And finally a new Tortix, but which one? I'm pretty sure its Endothenia and leaning towards marginana - what do you think?
