A reasonable haul again last night, the most interesting being two torticids (both of which nearly got away).
There are not many records of Phtheochroa inopiana in the eastern half of the county, so I was quite pleased with this one:

But there are even fewer records of Endothenia quadrimaculana at the end:


  1. You did better than me - I had an inexplicably poor catch in the garden with only 33 species. The only moths of note were Slender Brindle and Helcystogramma rufescens.

    I did much better with my two actinics left overnight near Pentyrch - will blog about that later.

  2. You did better than me George, 21 species and nothing of note! It was a bit breezy over here though...
