Lead Belle and a Plethora of Hawk-moths

Last night's moth trapping included this Lead Belle (early flight period and tear shaped black central spot) from a local woodland we have not trapped in before and four species of hawk-moth from our garden trap.

Included in the trap were several Maybugs and this Carrion Beetle.  The last edition of E moth from Butterfly Conservation is encouraging us to send these Silphidae records to iRecord.
