20th June 2011....Garden traps

Rain almost stopped play and the covers went over the trap.
Not a bad selection tho......
AGAPETA HAMANA 937 was a new tick for the year.....

.... followed by a second for year LACKEY 1634

My second DOT MOTH 2155 and this time I managed to get a pic.

GYPSONOMA SOCIANA 1168 a year first... ERROR...ERROR

Thanks Mark "Skev" Skevington for correctly I D'ing this as ....

SPILONOTA OCELLANA 1205 the BUD MOTH, a year first

I thought I'd leave the best 'til last....... A garden first ( and a lifer) SCARCE SILVER-LINES 2421 caught while checking the shed wall actinic lights in-between showers.

259 species.....159 macro, 100 micro


  1. Gypsonoma sociana? Or Bud Moth Spilonota ocellana ...
    Cracking Scarce Silver-lines, could do with another one of those in the garden this year.

  2. I think your Bud Moth is looking more likely Skev.
    I sent a pic to the recorder earlier, who hasn't got back to me yet, so I took a flyer.
    I've just had a look at the images on Lepiforum, which are better than UK Moths and it is definitely S. ocellana.
    Thanks again mate...I promise not to knock your music ever again

  3. No problems Trent - I'm thick skinned (have to be to listen to some of this stuff!)
