I know everyone is probably sick of Merthyr Mawr posts by now, but thought it worth posting this final one now that I've dissected the micros I took home last Saturday night. All four of the Cnephasia I took proved to be conspersana, which until now was only known from western Gower and a single from Maesteg, though it is doubtless under-recorded. It is classed as nationally scarce and is mainly coastal in distribution.

Cnephasia conspersana

  1. We caught several Cnephasia sp. at KNNR, a couple looking very similar to the above. As you say George very probably under-recorded.
