7th June 2009

A female Ghost Moth was the only new visitor of the year to the actinic in what was another quiet night. There was also a nice selection of minors which I've had a stab at identifying - they'll be established by gen.det. so I'll correct the identities if that proves necessary.

Ghost Moth

This moth fits the Waring and Townsend description of Rufous Minor with "bright, conspicuous pale brown oval and kidney-mark":

And this looks good for Tawny Marbled Minor with "coppery central band and no reddish tufts on thorax":
