Numbers up, diversity down
Another warm night at Cnwc produced even more moths than 9/4, with 224 individuals. Diversity dropped from 40 spp on 9/4 to 33 on 10/4, but new for the year were Great Prominent, Oaktree Pug, Coxcomb Prominent, Red-Green Carpet, Oak Nycteoline and Eriocrania subpurpurella. Among 22 Brindled Beauties was a gorgeous black and white morph (photo above). Southerly winds produced a Dark Swordgrass.
PS sorry to Chris and others - I know I’m lucky living here
