Creigiau - 28 August - Small Waved Umber ?

The box on Friday attracted 82 moths of 27 species. Of these 5 were new for the year - Chequered Fruit-tree Tortrix, Canary-shouldered Thorn, Flounced Rustic (I think), Small Square-spot and Small Waved Umber. The latter is new for the garden and me, and although looking a little battered, I'm fairly confident with my ID. The Tortrix was also new for the garden.

 The box also held 5 species of caddisfly, of which I could only identify one - Limnephilus lunatus.

Canary-shouldered Thorn

Flounced Rustic ... I think

Small Waved Umber


  1. Small Waved Umber looks good and that is indeed Flounced Rustic.

  2. Thanks Mark. The 2015 running total for the garden is edging towards the 250 mark now.
