Creigiau 07 June

Twenty moths of 12 species on Sunday night, including another new moth for me - I think it's Bryotropha affinis but would appreciate confirmation/correction.

Pebble Prominent was a first for the year, and they left me a few eggs in the pot! I may try and rear these because the final stage caterpillar looks really interesting.


  1. Bryotropha affins is one of those species that I could tell instantly in the flesh, but from a photo always look s slightly different. But yes, I think that is what you have here.

  2. Thanks Dave. As you say, 'in the flesh' it looked far more like the images in the ID books.
