Moorland Larvae

We cannot compete with Chris but a moorland walk up to Llyn Llygad Rheidol below Pumlumon today was rewarded with these two moth larvae.  We also disturbed a Northern Spinach whose larval food plant is bilberry.

  1. Lovely photos Evan - they both capture the environment really well. They also enabled me to ID a larva found in my garden - thanks.

    Anyway I know it's not competitive but I'll see your Fox Moth, and raise you fifty Large White!!
