Puss moth and others

A very successful night on Cors Fochno despite a battery connection failure on one of the two Heath traps. The other gave us about 150 moths, 25 macro species and 4 micro species. Most numerous were Common quaker (48), Hebrew character (40) and Clouded drab (19). First this year for us were Ruddy highflyer (7), Powdered quaker (3), Scalloped hooktip (2), Puss moth, V-pug, Iron prominent, Pebble prominent, Muslin moth (only the wings were intact), Narrow-winged pug, Least black arches.

In the micros there was Agonopterix ocellana, Acleris rufana, Phyllonorycter ulmifoliella and one as yet unidentified and unphotographed.
