Gothic

The garden trap last night produced 21 macro species and 7 micros. Large yellow underwings were most numerous, others included Black arches, Swallow prominent, Antler, Setaceous Hebrew character, Shuttle-shaped dart, Six-striped rustic and Small square spot. A single Gothic was a first for this year, although the flight period is mainly June and July according to the books.

Light brown apple moths were most numerous micros, with 7 males and 1 female. The numbers of Agriphila tristella and A. straminella seems to be increasing at the moment.
