Opened my trap at home yesterday for local primary school top class. This was just one box -
they were thrilled and excited. They had seen the trap set up the evening before so were amazed at the contents. Some nice big showy moths and a good smattering of Burnished Brass 'gold' showing up.
There were probably towards 400 moths, a number escaped and I battled my way through about 50 species, without an audience!
There were uncertainties and I would appreciate some help with:
can I call this a Small Rivulet - size seems right?
This seems to be a Brussels Lace - can someone check this?
Have failed with this pug (view from above and below)
Is this a Common Wave or a Common White Wave?
There was a July Belle I was confident about but this is different (?) is it a Lead Belle?
This Clay was small - size was that of a White-point but could that be?
I was flagging at this point - this may be just another Riband Wave?
This little beast was Minor size is it a Marbled or poss. a Rufous?
and this I guess is just a Common Rustic, pale version, well worn?
All in all a good box full - wish my brain was sharper!
