[0462] Ypsolopha sequella

Catch Report - 10/07/11 - Farmland/Back Garden - Hertfordshire

Playing catch-up as the saying goes!


A cloudy, warm evening with a few spots of rain, looked ideal....and then it tipped it down for 10 minutes at around 12am.

Still a cracking catch and 2 new species Limnaecia phragmitella and Large Tabby Aglossa pinguinalis to my ever growing list!

Best moth had to go to my second Small Marbled!


Also the two Ypsolopha species were great to see again, what an unusual looking pair of Micro moths they are!
