Llandaff North last night

Nothing in the same league as Clifden Nonpareil (obviously) but 22 species is pretty good for my garden in mid September. Highlight was Phyllonorycter platanoidella new for the site. I see the mines of this species on the Norway Maples down by the River Taff fairly regularly, though not on the street maples nearer the garden.

Phyllonorycter platanoidella
Also this Ectoedemia which is probably a worn sericopeza (another Norway Maple miner) but I've retained it for closer inspection.

Ectoedemia sericopeza/louisella
Macros included Blood-vein (3rd garden record), Light Emerald (having a strong 2nd brood this year) and Large Ranunculus.
