Aberglasney Gardens

Not quite Glamorgan but might be of interest.
A member of the Stathmopodidae family, with the sticking out hind legs, is flying in Abbotsbury Gardens, Dorset at the moment and there were rumours of something similar seen in Aberglasney in 2005 so we went to look. We finally found the moth Pachyrhabda steropodes amongst low growing Deer Fern. We saw 5 in a few minutes.


  1. Congratulations Chris! I`ve seen the fab photo and was also wondering what the fern was (which you`vea answered above). Perhaps you may now be tempted by some trapping in under-recorded Carmarthenshire, now that the Moths of Glamorgan is almost with us!

    1. Thanks Ian. Yes, could well be tempted, but away now until end of May.
