Another warm, calm night with plenty of action around the traps.
This Agonopterix species was potted up......
Only 2 others are similar, ciliella, which is also out of season, and cnicella which is flying in June but is a coastal species that has not been recorded in Bedfordshire VC30.
The forewing length is 9.5mm so all three fall into the size range.
One for our micro man.
Another micro which I haven't ID'd is this worn example below ....
Another for our micro man.
