Lilac Beauty

Another bumper night with 69 macro species, 15 common micros and two migrants from four traps placed in different habitats in our valley.  The star of the night was our first ever Lilac Beauty.  This was complemented by two beautiful Garden Tigers.  The migrants were the Silver Y and the Rush Veneer.

  1. What a good catch. Lilac beauty is a real beauty and only appears in very small numbers in Ceredigion. There have been 33 records since 2001, 18 of them coming from Ynys-hir when Russell was trapping regularly.
