June 2016

Several micros were retained over the year for identification/confirmation by gendet. The county recorder for VC31, Barry Dickerson, has returned the dissection results with the following identified for June 2016:

                                0397 Glyphipterix thrasonella

Trapped on 7th June, the black markings on the wings are distinctive. A garden first and the 5th county record.

                                1275 Dichrorampha flavidorsana

Caught on 11th June this was a second garden record (fourth for the county) after a rather battered individual in 2013.

                                0584 Coleophora alticolella

Trapped 21/6. The third garden record but the first since 2010.
