Moths Found on 5 June 2010

Forward to 13 June 2010 moth page, back to 23 May 2010 moth page, to general moths page.

A wonderful weekend for moths and several interesting varieties of Hawk Moth flying at the same time: a Lime Hawk Moth slightly late (previously photographed here), and a rivet Hawk Moth (previously photographed here) and Small Elephant Hawk Moth (previously photographed here), both slightly early.  Many thanks to Tim Prichard of Suffolk Moths for correcting our ID confusions here.

Others worth photographing were:

Others in the trap were loads of Heart & Dart, several Clouded Silvers and Clepsis consimilana, a Common Marbled Carpet, a Flame Shoulder and a Shuttle-shaped Dart.

As a bonus catch, Alice found a small and very pretty day flying moth in the garden this week.  No more than 10 mm long it's a Mint Moth.
