Nemapogon koenigi

 Three Nemapogon koenigi to a VES lure late afternoon---the third year in succession that I have had this species to VES here. The atlas seems to have very few records for Bucks, but I wonder whether more widespread deployment of the lure would reveal it to be more common? I have not had it to light.

  1. Hello Phil,
    It'll be under-recorded, like many micro-moths. Believe it or not there are still people out there who only look at macros and ignore the micros! I've had a few records of koenigi here and they do include three to light so it could also turn up in the trap. The others have been found either indoors, or else like your example came to the VES lure.
