Nantyffyllon yesterday.

Cydia nigricana.
Bucculatrix cidarella.
Small pearl bordered fritilliary.
Also - Small fan foot 2, Eupoecilia angustana 5, Elachista subalbidella 2, Neofaculta ericetella 3 and Pseudargyrotoza conwagana 10+ beaten from Field maple.


  1. Had to use flash on the B. cidarella unfortunately, due to poor light and the moths refusal to sit still. According to my mapmate it's the 4th county record....

  2. Yes, a poorly recorded moth. I've not seen the leaf mine since Maitland Emmet showed it to me in Llandaff North - and I have looked!
