Two new Tortrix species in Burry Port
I collected an attractive large Tortrix from the trap which I believe is Chequered Fruit Tree Tortrix.
I was thrown by another Tortrix, less than half the size of the one above, quite strongly marked and with bright red eyes. Could it be a male Rose Tortrix?
Also notable were FFY Honeysuckle Moth and Canary-shouldered Thorn.
