29th May 2014 .. More "year first" moths

A good night for the garden traps with 40 species of moth recorded.
Heart and Dart have replaced Shuttle-shaped Dart as the most numerous species in the traps.
Two more Toadflax Brocade were in the traps making 12 for the year and fast approaching last years high count of 17.
The first grass moth was recorded last night, Crambus lathoniellus, and a year first Common Footman which will shortly infest the traps.
Dark Arches x 3 and an Elephant Hawk-moth completed the year newbies ...

1301, Crambus lathoniellus
1991, Elephant Hawk-moth

2050, Common Footman
Dark Arches
