Overnight in Bridgend 28Nov14

Our optimism in putting the MV trap out last night yielded a nice but worn Feathered Thorn, accompanied by 3 Light Brown Apple moth.

We also found a small micro indoors which with the help of another moth'er seems to be Garden Cosmet / Mompha subbistrigella, our 200th species for the year and our 369th species for the house / garden.

  1. The Mompha looks more like M. divisella. M. subbistrigella is darker and lacks the orange markings.

    M. bradleyi is very similar to M. divisella but doesn't usually have the pale area near the base of the wing so well defined, so I think yours is probably safe to call divisella.
