23rd July 2009 - Part 1

I've been away for two weeks so lots of new species for the year on my first night back trapping. The highlight was the rather pretty Agonopterix subpropinquella f. rhodochrella which had me hunting through books and websites until I eventually found a picture in MoGBI. Thirteen others were nfy and a bundle of micros, mostly gelechids, are awaiting ID. A single noctuid remains outstanding and I've put a photo on the 'inidentified' blog.

A handy comparison was the usual form of A.subpropinquella also taken last night:
