Pammene giganteana. First county record
Pammene argyrana. Last recorded in Glamorgan in 1923.
I caught these two tortrix at Merthyr mawr dunes on 24/5/2017 and gave them to George Tordoff for dissection. They were thought lost until refound this week! Thanks George and to Dave for confirmation.

A good mix in the trap from Sunday night including Merveille du Jour, December Moth, Red-green Carpet, Yellow-line Quaker and two Silver Y. The surprise was the Sprawler - doubly so as I hadn't checked to see how scarce it was here (GMS folks always seem to get them here and there). Poss. 6th record for Glamorgan and 2nd since 1917 (Thanks to George)! I shall have to try to get a better pic...
