|Chalk Carpet, Finemere Wood 14th July|
The other surprises were two species new for the wood's already extensive list, Batrachedra pinicolella and Muslin Footman, which take the number known from the site to 706 (or 707 if Dave Maunder's Chamomile Shark larva, found along the track leading to the wood, is included). The Muslin Footman below (right) is shown alongside a Round-winged Muslin (left) which came to my garden trap at Westcott last night. The Muslin Footman's see-through wings are fairly obvious in this shot.
