May 2011

Every year I retain a number of the more difficult micros for my county recorder to identify by dissection. The results for this year include 8 new species for the garden and another dozen or so that haven't been recorded here for several years. Photos of all these follow under the moth they were originally trapped. The total number of species trapped in 2011 now stands at 490 and the garden list moves up to 738 species.

I thought this might be a female Incurvaria pectinea but it proved to be my first Lampronia morosa and only the 5th county record:
