Micros were equally abundant, with: Crassa unitella, Pandemis cerasana, Hedya nubiferana, Epiphyas possvittana, Pandemis corylana, Phtheochroa rugosana, Eudonia lacustrata, Agonopterix subpropinquella, Epiblema trimaculana and Clepsis consimilana. A Teleiodes vulgella was a new moth for my parish records.
With weather predicted to remain increasingly hot, should be a good week that will take the total, presently 168 moth species for 2015 close to 200 by next weekend. Plenty about to still find.
The daylight netting session on Ah Valley GC gave up a fair selection within an hour: 100+ chrysoteuchia culmella, 50+ meadow brown, 10+ marbled white, 5+ large skipper, 1 Essex skipper, magpie moth, straw dot, Tortrix viridana (NFY) Scoparia ambigualis, Celypha lacunana and a cinnabar.
