20th July 2014 ... Likin' the lichen

Still hectic around the garden traps as temperatures remain high.
There has been a huge influx of Diamond-back moths over the last few days with 10+ recorded for the last 4 nights, and that is a conservative estimate.
Another migrant from last night was a Tree-lichen Beauty, attracted to the 15watt BLB on the shed wall, one to look out for....

It's been a lazy week recording-wise as there have been too many moths to deal with so I've just "cherry picked" a few each evening, mainly new moths for the garden year, plus a few.

On the 18th it was again warm and sultry with a brief but heavy shower.
4 micros were added to the garden list and many more were potted up for our county micro recorder to identify....
462 . YPSOLOPHA SEQUELLA

877 . STATHMOPODA PEDELLA


1113 . EUDEMIS PROFUNDANA


1415 . ORTHOPYGIA GLAUCINALIS


19th
Warm, humid
Two micros that I will get confirmed.
The first one could be 274 . BUCCULATRIX ULMELLA

or maybe a worn B. thoracella

The 2nd I think is 1274 . DICHRORAMPHA ALPINANA


No problem with 1350 . NYMPHULA STAGNATA
