Parc Slip friday

I set the trap here last thursday night and caught just over 60 species including my second ever Pseudopostega crepusculella and FFY of wormwood pug, drinker, canary-shouldered thorn, shuttle-shaped dart, lychnis, flame carpet, Pyrausta purpuralis and Argyresthia goedartella, . There was also a couple I would like help with please:
White-spotted pug?

Not sure even though it's well-marked...
Then there was this little moth that I caught at Coed Garnllwyd on the same day. Is it Chrysoclista linneella?


  1. Hi Vaughn, I think your orange one is Mompha locupletella but I agree with your White-spotted Pug. I'll pass on the Tort for now!

  2. Epinotia nisella for the tort?

  3. Thanks George - that was my suspicion
