Male Emperor Moth


Our first warm night produced a total of 138 moths of 34 macro and four micro species.  To our great surprise we found the male day-flying Emperor Moth in our garden trap with no female in sight.  We had several firsts for the year, some of which are in the gallery below, including a rather early Coronet (dark form) and a new micro for us.
