Golden plusia

I woke up Sunday morning to find a pristine Golden plusia in my garden trap - a moth i haven't seen in Aylesbury since the 1980's when i used to trap at my mum's! Dave Maunder
Golden Plusia, Lavender walk, Aylesbury, 29-6-2014


  1. Not many Bucks records over the last few years (none for 2013). Only 19 over the last 10 years, but only from 5 sites. Have you got details of when you saw it previously in Aylesbury please?

  2. Hi Martin - my last recollection of this species was when i lived at my parents place in the 1980's, which was at Blenheim place, Aylesbury, grid ref. sp822121. I used to get 2 or 3 a year in the early 80's.

    1. I bet you were using that same log for photographs then too! What a nice catch!!
