1st Jan 2013

Mythimna sp.
We kicked the year off looking for Devonshire Wainscot larvae tapping the grassy over hangs above the soft cliff at Port Eynon Point. The only larva we found was probably just a Smoky Wainscot, but Common or Devonshire are possible, so we'll rear it on to find out. In the same grassy overhangs we did find lots of Tawny Cockroach nymphs that were very active in the mild conditions.

...devils to photograph, but the hind leg is sharp!

  1. Missed your post Barry. Good idea to look for Devonshire larvae; I'll have a go in the next mild spell and let you know if I find anything.
