Parc Slip

I trapped here on monday night as we had a moth morning on tuesday - was expecting a fairly empty trap as it was cool overnight but ended up with one that was pretty full (mainly of flame shoulders - 74 of them in fact..). In total we had 381 moths of 69 species compared to 60 moths of 30 species on friday night.
Highlights were the first black arches, yellow-tail, devon carpet and dun-bar of the year, phoenix, dark sword-grass, rusty-dot pearl and 5 types of yellow underwing (large, broad-bordered, lesser, lesser broad-bordered and least.
A couple of queries as usual...
Agonopterix heracliana/ciliella?

Not sure

Terrible photo of Rhopobota naeviana?


  1. Agree with those, and Bactra sp, probably lancealana, for the other.
