NFG- Upper Caldcote 13-11-12

Not too much in the way of macro moths at the moment as the Autumn wears on. But the 13th was especially mild and as a consequence, did manage to trap a handful of moths (list at the foot of this post). Pick of the bunch was this Acleris sp. which I have retained. I think it is either ferrugana or notana; either would be new for the garden. Now confirmed as Acleris ferrugana, gen. det. D. Manning VC30 Moths.

1044 Acleris ferrugana

 34 Ectoedemia occultella
NFG- Seems to be a few of these reported this year. One I didn't record last year on the same Birch Tree.

 114/15 Stigmella glutinosae/alnetella
Whoops! This is a diptera (fly) mine. It is made by Agromyza alnivora
Well spotted A. Banthorpe of VC30 Moths.
