I took my net for a short walk above Penryhncoch early last Thursday evening, around the edges of the conifer plantations (as instructed by the county micro recorder!). We found two Small Argent & Sable plus several micros: Crambus lathoniellus, Syndemis musculana, Micropterix aureatella, Nematapogon swammerdamella, Incurvaria oehlmanniella, Rhopobota myrtillana, and possibly Lampronia luzella and Epinotia fraternana (sorry about the photo).
Rhopobota myrtillana


  1. I keep saying your young eyes are far better than my old ones!
    Well done and further instructions to follow...
    Seriously though that is E.fraternana - 3rd county record.
    R.myrtillana - 1st fully documented.
    L.luzella - New
    We were going up there for the Small Argent & Sable at some point, but won't be this week looking at the weather.

  2. Wow, some excellent records.
