Garden moth trap 20th June

207 moths of 72 species (55 macro and 17 micro).  2 Waved Carpets were new for here (I think Pete mentioned one in New Quay in his blog post recently).  I also had some other moths that I don't see very often: Small Elephant Hawkmoth x 2; Red-necked Footman; Dingy Shell; Latticed Heath; and 9 Limnaecia phragmitella.

Waved Carpet

  1. Waved Carpet has not been recorded at Aberporth since 1984 and there are only 26 records in the county before this year.
    Limnaecia phragmitella never seems to come in ones, I think I remember you saying there were Bulrushes not too far away.

    Red-necked Footman is having a good year too.
