Tachystola acroxantha

With temperatures staying above 10C, light winds and occasional light rain, it seemed a good night to put the moth trap out.  The result this morning was 47 moths, mostly up the house walls, including this Tachystola acroxantha.

  1. Well done Sarah, I think you are doing a great job keeping going with the trap when the weather is suitable. Winter trapping can be rewarding.
    Your micro is very under-recorded in Ceredigion, in fact it may be a first.
    We are just back from Lancashire and there have been a few up there.

  2. Thanks. It's interesting to see what moths are still around. Is anyone else in this group continuing to trap?

  3. Can you mail me the details please for this one. Date, grid reference, your full name. I'm sure it's a first and i'd like to get it published in the Micro Review please. Can you mail me off group? peter.hall18@virgin.net

  4. Thanks Sarah. And I spoke with John Langmaid and can confirm it is a county first. Well done!
