13th July 2013

371 moths of 108 species was easily the best catch of the year to date. The tiny Opostega salaciella was new to the garden and quite easy to identify from the very large eyecaps. Two Coronets were only the second and third records for the garden following a singleton in 2009.
Edit: I'm clearly getting too old for this! It's actually the 2nd garden record of Opostega salaciella following one in 2008 identified by dissection.
