Early 2009

The year started cold and the only moths found were in the house. I'd recorded Indian Meal Moth (Plodia interpunctella) on several occasions previously but it was absent in 2008 so finding one fluttering around the house on 4th January was particularly welcome. I do wonder where it came from though!

The second moth of the year, Agonopterix alstromeriana, was caught under almost identical circumstances two weeks later. It wasn't such a surprise this time as it appears regularly indoors, particularly in the winter.
