Rosy wave

This nationally scarce moth was caught by Liz at Ynys Las on Tuesday night. There have been very few records for it in Ceredigion. According to Adrian Fowles "The moths of Ceredigion" , it was first recorded here at Ynys Las in 1938, and small numbers were trapped there up to 1984. It is great to know that it is still present, but its numbers must be very low.
