Tree-mendous! 30-08

A good night with slightly higher temperatures heralded only the 2nd ever VC30 record of Tree-lichen Beauty. The 1st was caught in Barton Hills in 2007 by A&M Banthrope, but since then the species has been steadily moving north and is classed as an 'Immigrant / Recent Colonist'. A pretty handy record for a village back garden. 

Tonight is the monthly trip to Home Wood for the Forestry Commission survey, let's hope something equally as good turns up there.............Will try and catch up with lists/posts after this.

Tree-lichen Beauty


  1. Waiting for this and Toadflax Brocade to make it just a bit further north within the next couple of years.

  2. I'll be dead (and tanned with global warming) before it gets up here!

  3. Mark- I'm still waiting for TF Brocade too, Trent seems to have kept them all for himself...

    Stewart- To save you getting a tan- T-L Beauty is in the post.........
