This Caloptilia was posted on 16th March this year.
I had a guess at C. syringella and retained it for our county micro recorder.
The results came back today and it has been identified as 281 Caloptilia populetorum which is only the second record for VC30, the first being in 2003 in the R.I.S. Trap at Cockayne Hatley.
Information and gen det from David Manning, Beds and Northants micro moth recorder.
