Pugs & Powder.....22/04
Common Pug Powdered Quaker Hebrew Character Pyrausta aurata
Yet again not a great deal around in cold nightly conditions, even though during the day the weather has been glorious. The minefield that is Pugs has reared it's ugly head above my garden trap, as this 1 was found clinging to the underside of the roof overhang. It has a wingspan of 22mm and is similar in size to the melanic Brindled Pug I trapped last week.....any ideas?
Thanks to Melissa and Ben for your ID- Common Pug it is!*!
Today I had my 1st Pyrausta aurata of the year. These turn up in force and love herbs, especially Spearmint and Oregano!
STOP PRESS! I also had a Swift over my house! 22/04 is the earliest record I've ever had!
