Gowerton 29 Oct 14

In spite of the warm night only 6 species in the garden, including  a very dark Diamond Back and one of the almost infinitely variable Acleris cristana.

Acleris cristana


  1. Chris, I think that might be the infinitely variable Acleris hastiana - scale tufts look a bit small for cristana and it is a known colour form of hastiana.

  2. Excellent, thanks George. I'll change that.
