Little visitor to the garden

Now I know lots of you are not set alight by micros but to me this was the highlight of the catch last night.
Hardly a big moth being c4mm from the top of his hair-do to the fringe of his wings, easily missed in the bottom of a trap among the midges.  Luckily Tony spotted this one and I am phoning the opticians later!!
Ladies and gentlemen I give you...Bucculatrix nigricomella.


  1. Not allowed, not in my book!
    Only other record 1982 down here at Aberporth?

    1. I've seen them occasionally near Aberystwyth, earlier in the spring, on Oxeye Daisy
