Rhoose Point 29/5

40 identified species from last night, plus a few that I will post photos of later with queries. New moths include Straw Dot, Tinea semifulvella, Light Arches, Small Blood-vein, Lime-speck Pug, Clay and what looks like Cochylis molliculana or hybridella. NBN gateway suggests molliculana could be a county (and Wales) first if confirmed? We have a lot of the foodplant of hybridella locally (bristly ox-tongue). Once my wife returns from Liverpool with the camera I will load up a photo!


  1. If it is molliculana, I' want you to keep the specimen for me. These can be tricky from photographs.

  2. Will do. I'll load a photo later today too.
