More micros

Although I haven't caught any different macro moths recently, today was a good day for the micro-lepidoptera of the island. Two Apotomis semifasciana and an Eana penziana were in the moth trap, which are both Nationally Scarce B. They are also the second and third records for the island. During the day I found  Phalonidia manniana, which is the first record for the island and another Nationally Scarce moth.

Also in the traps was this smart Endotricha flammealis (first of the year) and a Bramble-shoot Moth
