400 Up

Albeit at a slower rate than during our 'heatwave' period, the garden trap here at Westcott has continued to produce new species for the year list each night, with the following being added:

22nd June
Lozotaenia forsterana, Udea prunalis, Dark Sword-grass
23rd June
Marasmarcha lunaedactyla, Phycita roborella, Lobster Moth, Old Lady
24th June
Buff Footman
25th June
Pandemis heparana, Least Carpet, Muslin Footman
26th June
Acleris forsskaleana, Yarrow Pug (awaiting dissection), Dingy Footman, Dun-bar

The garden list currently stands at 402 species for the year, the first time ever that 400 has been passed in June, so tonight I've given the trap a celebratory and well-earned night off (well, it is raining after all!).

Lozotaenia forsterana, Westcott 22nd June 

Marasmarcha lunaedactyla, Westcott 23rd June

Muslin Footman, Westcott 25th June

Probable Yarrow Pug, Westcott 26th June
