A new micro for Burry Port

The only thing of note in a very small trap was a micro, which I believe is Ptocheuusa paupella.
It seems to have a range restricted to southern England and sliver of Wales and is a denizen of damp woods and salt marshes.

  1. A nice find, Adam! There are only 6 previous Carms records of Ptocheusa.

  2. Thank you Sam - I didn't realise it's local rarity - although the maps hinted at it.
