Two moths in particular have been outstanding catches. Firstly, on 21st July, a stunning pink and yellow moth Oncocera semirubella, listed as Herts extinct up until recent published records, 2006. However, I am led to believe a few have now been taken within the county. Also, still catching up with the huge haul from 20th, a leek moth, Acrolepiopsis assectella. This moth is only the 2nd county record, so again, a really good find.
Other new moths for records were maple pug and Lozotaeniodes formosaunus, shown here.
Other new for year moths included magpie, (shown below) Herald, peppered moth, buff footman, Ypsolopha dentella, Agriphilia straminella, Swammerdamia pyrella, Blastobasis adustella and Monochroa pallustrellus
