A couple of new garden ticks

A reasonable catch last night at Marlow Bottom of 82 identified species included 2 new species for my garden.  The first, Lozotaeniodes formosanus, was slightly unexpected in my broad-leaved woodland habitat, though pine trees aren't too far away:

The second will be new whatever it is, though I'm not entirely sure of my identification as Bactra furfurana, so I'd appreciate confirmation:

I've added photos of Bird's Wing and  2 Large Emeralds, because I thought they looked nice:

A worn Green Arches had me confused last night until I saw the remnants of green this morning. Some of the others included, in no particular order: Mocha, Pretty Chalk Carpet, 3 Phoenix, 2 Miller, 2 Privet HM, Coxcomb Prominent, Peach Blossom, Small Emerald, Chinese Character, Buff Footman, Wormwood Pug, Lobster and about 10 August Thorns (I always get good numbers of these).

  1. Hi Adam, that is indeed a nicely-marked furfurana. There are only about 20 Bucks records, all but one of them being from the northern half of the county and the Ivinghoe area, so that's a useful find.
