Chestnuts....not 'roasting on an open fire'

Two traps at Ynys-hir last night, the Actinic doing slightly better than the MV light for both numbers and species.
The first Chestnuts we have seen this season and first Large Wainscots too. 
Others, in no particular order...  CMCarpet, Red-green C, Spruce C, Grey Pine C, Pine C. Red-line Quaker, Blk Rustic, Green-brindled Cres, Lt Emerald, Marveille du Jour.


Large Wainscot

Green-brindled Crescent
Quality of photos is not too great, sorry!

  1. That costa is very straight and the apex very pointy on the Chestnut. Is it a candidate for a Dark one?

    1. Thanks for your comment Peter. Ina did get quite excited at the time when she thought we might have a Dark chestnut, but on close inspection all turned out to be Chestnuts. I think the position on the egg box and angle of photo are not ideal on this example.


  2. Should have used the bubblebath then..
