Overnight in Bridgend

Last night we trapped approx 60 moths of 20 species and a lovely autumn catch it was.

The highlights were Large Ranunculus, 2 Sallow (first since 2011), Burnished Brass (first since 2009), 2 Angle Shades, 2 Light Emerald and a Dusky Thorn.

A couple of micros were a bit troublesome, I think one could be Pseudotelphusa paripunctella due to the white tuft / scales or even Carpatolechia notatella, but our literature says May / June for those, any ideas anyone? Emma will load some better images later on.

  1. I think that Gelechid is Teleiopsis diffinis, which is multi-brooded and feeds on Sheep's Sorrel.
