Moth Trapping down on the farm part 3 - This place continues to show me new moths!

 

I was back at my parents on Tuesday night armed with 5 traps and enough cable to spread them around to try and maximise light coverage.

 

The day was scorching hot and quite unbearable for work as I had to drive around a giant greenhouse on wheels, a minibus!

 

At setting up time at 9pm it was still a Mediterranean 25 degrees and it only dropped to 20c at 4am so it was absolutely perfect, bar the full moon and gusty wind. But you can't have everything can you?

The moths were quick to the lights and the list was creeping up steadily and by midnight we had over 100 species which was pleasing indeed.

 

Some local species were nice to see, such as Waved Black and Dotted Fan-foot.

 

Best moth was probably my second ever Anarsia lineatella, having seen my first a few weeks ago at the same location and in the same trap! It was to be the 3rd County record.

 

I was pleased to get a fresh example of Grapholita funebrana, a first for me and possibly may have been over-looked in the past.

 

Another new moth for me was a Cochylis flaviciliana/roseana. It is more likely to be roseana as this is local in the County but I will get it double-checked just to be sure, still a really pretty moth but o so tiny!

I also potted up an unusual looking Scoparia, which seems to resemble subfusca but it still doesn't look quite right for any of the British species, it most likely is an aberrant form of one of the commoner Scoparids. Again it will be checked to verify the record.

 

The farm never disappoints and this visit was no different with 166 species recorded.
