Bindweed Miner

Bedellia somnulentella is a micro which I've been hoping to see at Westcott, Bucks for several years.  I've found active larval mines here on bindweed a couple of times since 2011 but up until now have never had a garden record of the adult moth.  However, one of them finally appeared in the actinic trap last night.

Bedellia somnulentella, Westcott 29th October

The garden trap continues to be run nightly at the moment in the vain hope that something unexpected might turn up, but my tiny crumbs from the large migrant cake over the past few nights have amounted to Plutella xylostella (2), Udea ferrugalis (3) & Silver Y (2).  Still, if you don't try you won't get anything!   Dave Wilton
