Autumn moths

We ran two traps at RSPB's Ynys-hir reserve last night and caught over 250 moths. Nearly 100 of them were Epirrita species (November Moth Agg.). Some of the 30 macro species were Merveille du Jour, Feathered Thorn, Satellite, Grey Pine Carpet, Spruce Carpet, Pine Carpet, Autumn Green Carpet, Large Wainscot, Grey Shoulder-knot, Pale Pinion, December Moth, Willow Beauty, Small Fan-footed Wave, Brick and 3 Vestal (see Sarah's post).
The 6 micros were Carcina quercana, Acleris Sparsana, Celypha lacunana, Hypsophygia costalis (Gold Triangle), Ypsolopha sequella, Calybites phasianipennella (smallest moth of the night, longest name!)
