Askernish Moths 20 July 2013

Post by MisterT » 21 Jul 2013, 21:59

Mothing in the garden in Askernish last night resulted in 430 moths of 38 species. Of note were a singleton Gothic and a Burnished Brass resembling the form aurea (not sure of the current status regarding the seperation of the 2 forms). Other species of note were 3 Brown China-marks, 24 Straw Dots, 1 Drinker, 6 Stripped Rustic, 1 Rivulet and a Purple Bar.
