Finally, a few macros

And finally, with apologies (but this should enable us to get up to date), a clutch of macros which either we're not sure on, or, in one case, which we need confirmation on: one of a couple of what I think are Smoky Wainscots from 20th; a presumed, though rather worn, Light Arches from last night; and a complete mystery - also rather worn - from 16th. Hopefully shouldn't be too controversial - many thanks for any help.

Possible Smoky Wainscot, 20/6/14

Possible Smoky Wainscot, 20/6/14

Presumed Light Arches, 21/6/14

Worn unknown, 16/6/14
It turns out I was underestimating how many moths we were getting: on the 13th, I've worked out, we had 207 individuals of 55 species, which compares pretty well with the best we had last summer - we should break 300 individuals at some point, I suspect, but 200+ is not bad for mid-June. Steve and Xander Goddard.


  1. Yes to Smoky, yes to Light Arches and yes to a worn unknown (maybe a Bright-line Brown-eye)
