And a few more from Rhoose...

A very good catch last night with low 80's for the species count (still a few I need to look at).

Without a doubt the pick of the bunch were Small Ranunculus and Acleris logiana/kochiella.  I will pop a photo of both up later.  Would it be a good idea to dissect the Acleris Dave?

Others new for the garden record were:
  • Endothenia marginana
  • Gypsonoma dealbana
  • Ringed China-mark
  • Scoparia subfusca
  • Hypsopygia glaucinalis
  • Dot Moth
  • Dusky Sallow
  • July Highflyer
  • and finally what looks like Chilo phragmitella or Calomotropha paludella.  Again I'll post a pic of that one.
It's almost like the insect population has just been waiting for a bit of heat - there was also a huge variety of flies, lacewings, caddis, beetles (about 40 ground beetles flew in) and parasitic wasps.  Let's hope it stays like this!

  1. Yes, probably best to send me the Acleris since we have so few records.
