Parc Slip

After weeks of 1,2 or, more usually, 0 moths in the trap, last night finally provided a decent haul with a minimum temperature of 8 degrees.

Pale Brindled Beauty 1
Dotted Border 1
March Moth 1
Clouded Drab 5
Hebrew Character 5
Common Quaker 6
Chestnut 3
Shoulder-stripe 1
And these 2 micros...
Is this Acleris hastiana (apologies for qualities of photos...)
And the closest I could get with this one was Agonopterix heracliana?


  1. The Acleris hasitiana looks fine. If you look at the underside of the Agonopterix see if you can see any lines in the terminal cilia - I'll upload a photo shortly so that you can see what you are looking for.

  2. Good catch Vaughn, the season seems to be progressing well. I might leave my actinics at Coed-y-bedw again this weekend.

  3. Thanks George - let me know how you get on - I think I'll trap at home as the weather's looking promising
