Three Drepanidae

A bumper night produced 50 macro species in three traps.  A high spot was these three Drepanidae - Pebble Hook-tip, Scalloped Hook-tip and Chinese Character.  The most numerous were Black Arches reaching double figures and others included Gold Spangle, Orange Swift, Cloaked Carpet, Yellow-tail, Flounced Rustic and an end of season Gothic.

  1. I had 4 moths in my 15w synergetic…yes the trap which caught hundreds in the rain!. temps really dipped here last night. I'm at 230m and you are 100m, but even so must have been cloudy up your way or you would have had frost!

  2. 8.6°C - Skin So Soft was essential when I went out at night to check the traps!

  3. Ah, that's what attracted the moths!!
