25th July 2009

241 moths of 86 species was an improvement on the previous night with several new for the year and one new for the garden list - a rather battered Square-spotted Clay. The first Copper Underwing of the year is confusing - the underwing seems to show it as pyramidea but the palps point to berbera. I'm going to anaesthetise the moth and try for some better shots of the underwing and post the results later.

Square-spotted Clay:

The second Silky Wainscot of the year (and 3rd for the garden) was of the usual form:

Euzophera pinguis:

Agriphila tristella:

Grapholita janthinana:

Argyresthia goedartella f. literella:

Teleiodes vulgella:
