Cream-bordered Green Pea and a new Micro in Burry Port
When I first saw this moth, the Orange border at the rear of the forewing made me think of Green Silverline. However this moth was not big enough and lacked silver lines.
It's clearly a slightly battered Cream-bordered Green Pea. Also present was a tiny micro, I wondered if it was Argyresthia cupresella - not on the Carmarthenshire list. It's a north American import to Europe. Any ideas?
