Lesser Broad-bordered Yellow Underwing
Torticidae sp? Help appreciated
Enarmonia formosana - Cherry bark tortix?
A good night in the moth traps last night with a number of new ones for the garden in Penrhyn Bay. Northern Eggar, Magpie Moth and Lesser broad-bordered Yellow Underwings were all new here and were amongst a haul of Macros that included Swallowtail, Least Yellow Underwing, Lesser and Large Yellow Underwings, Triple-spotted Clay, Lime-speck Pug, Cabbage Moth, Dark Arches, Flame shoulder and Common Footman.
I got the new micro book for my birdthday - what a nightmare they are! Hats off to Ben and Julian for the regular i.d's on this site! I spent over an hour trying to identify a few with frustratingly a few flying off as I tried to photograph them. I had a Light brown apple moth (same type as Julian's in the last post), a Carcina quercana, what I think is a Enarmonia formosana - Cherry bark Tortix and one that I photographed above that I just can't place.
Strangely, I had a water boatman in the trap - amazing to think that these things make their way at night from water to water!
