2009 Micro

Just dug this photo out from 2009 when I presumably caught it in a trap here on the island. It was probably the  first micro moth I ever bothered to take a picture of! Pretty straight-forward to ID it as Orthotelia sparganella, however a look at the distribution map does not show any records coming from down the Lleyn or Anglesey-does anyone know how many records there have been of this species in North Wales?

  1. Only been 2 records as far as I can see Ben! Best to send record to CR along with pic for confirmation. Also noted that there are very few records on mainland of marbled green you caught recently.
