Bridgend garden (MV) Thu 10Jul14

41 species were trapped last night. A nice variety of micros too, with Spindle Ermine (agg), Oegoconia sp, Lozotaenia forsterana, Acleris forsskaleana, Acrobasis sp (possibly advenella see photo) and Dioryctria sp (possibly sylvestrella see photo). The Dioryctria sp, will be new for the garden Our 355th species (98th micro sp).

Macros new for the year were Single-dotted Wave, Clouded Border, Pale Prominent, Yellow-tail and Garden Tiger. We had 9 Swallow-tailed moths, but the local House sparrows had cottoned on to us and ate the lot. We again had a cracking Elephant Hawkmoth and a Poplar Hawkmoth.

  1. The "Acrobasis" is Phycita roborella.
    As for the Dioryctria, it would be good to get some of these checked out properly - we don't really have any idea what species we've got as none of the specimens have been dissected.
