Bee moths and others

I set up only the actinic last night, just to see what was around and, indeed, there was a different mix to a few days ago before the spell cold and clear nights. The catch did n`t hold anything particularly exciting though Acleris cristana and a decent crop of 8 bee moths was some compensation. Brindled (12) and double-striped pugs (8) were out in comparative force too, compared to the low numbers of macros. The mostly-gold micro Dyseriocrania subpurpurella was also caught, probably a wanderer from nearby oaks.
