After about three years of intensive trapping, catching new species is becoming more and more difficult. Though last night I caught my second new macro moth of the year. I suppose it was inevitable that I would eventually get one of these-
It's another scalp for the humble 15w BLB bulb on the shed at the bottom of the garden.
This time the 'spotless' form.
435 Zelleria hepariella
663 Diurnea fagella
649 Esperia Sulphurella
This day flying species was found today (23rd) and is NFY.
