Llantrisant Common last night

A 3 hour session with the WTSWW at their Y Gweira reserve on Llantrisant Common on 21st May produced a good haul of 42 species (as usual, one MV and two 6W actinics were used). Highlights were two nice felines, Puss Moth and Alder Kitten, both of which seem to be the first records for ST08 since the 1857 records made by Evan John. Other highlights among the macro-moths were Square Spot, Oblique Carpet, Fox Moth, Coronet and Campion.

Only a few micro-moths were recorded but these included Elachista subalbidella and Phyllonorycter harrisella both new for ST08.
