The New Arrivals Continue...

With the hot weather continuing, moth numbers to my actinic light have been dramatically increased, with over 30 species a night (more than twice the species and 4 times the individuals as last week), and consequently new species are appearing on the list all the time.

It's always nice to see familiar species re-emerging, and even more so, new species for the garden list:

Pseudargyrotoza conwagana (NFG)
Scoparia pyralella
Udea prunalis
Common Emerald (strictly speaking, in the house rather than the garden!)
Small Blood Vein
Small Dusty Wave
Dwarf Pug
Peacock Moth (NFG)
Brown Silver-line (NFG)
Pale Oak Beauty (NFG)
Buff Footman
Miller (NFG)
