Parc slip yesterday.

              The same Ash bud moth photographed by Vaughn yesterday.
              Has P. ruficeps been split yet, and does it need a gen det?


  1. They have been split. It there is no indication of the markings of the typical Prays fraxinella, and it has a 'rufous' head then it is apparently safe to record it as ruficeps (as yours appears to be). There are no consistent features in the genitalia, so no point dissecting them!

  2. Cheers Dave. I had one at Llangynwyd last night too.
