Burial Park Trap

The 6W trap caught 14 species overnight; new for the year on-site were Lobster, Green Carpet, Spruce Carpet, Pebble Hook-tip and Tawny-barred Angle, a Cnephasia sp., plus this micro if anyone can id it from the pic?


Also around the site new for year was a damaged Buff Ermine.

Hopefully tomorrow nights trapping session will add considerably to our list; please get in touch if you want to join us!

  1. Well, it's a Phyllonorycter, but beyond that I'm not sure.

    1. I think you could have tried a bit harder for Dave! There are 55 Phyllonorycters and it isn't 35 of them on looks alone. That brings it down to a choice of 20 - much more manageable!!

  2. Thanks Peter. Obviously the habitat doesn't rule out quite a few, so hopefully it or its kin will arrive tomorrow night!
