4th Aug 2011 ... Clearly a new garden species

13.00 pm ... Checking out my tomato and runner bean plants proved to be a good move.
Sitting on a Lemon Balm leaf amongst the beans was a Red-belted Clearwing...
This is the first clearwing I have seen and obviously a new moth for The Dells garden..

379 Red-belted Clearwing
Synanthedon myopaeformis
In situ in garden, on Melissa leaf (Lemon Balm)


  1. Thats a Red Belter of a clearwing that Trent!

  2. Cheers Stewart
    I'm well chuffed with it....The irony is that it was next to my raspberry patch
