Deceased Micro

Very poor catch last night here at Tilehurst.
3 Light Brown Apples
2 Shuttle-shaped Darts
1 Poplar Hawkmoth
1 Light Brocade
1 Tachystola acroxantha
1 Common Plume
1 Faded Pug (Too hard for me to identify)
4 Cockchafers: 1 Caddisfly: 1 Ichneumon Wasp.
Plus this deceased Micro. Is it possible to identify please.


  1. Hello Tony,
    Your deceased micro looks like another Tachystola acroxantha.

  2. Thanks Dave. It was the rigor mortis position of the wings that threw me.
