New Moths Found on 14 June 2009

Forward to 21 June 2009 moth page, back to 7 June 2009 moth page, to general moths page.

A proper moth weekend at last with many tens of moths in the trap.  Most marvellous was the Blood-Vein, which we've previously only caught on a visit to South Wales and two new moths for us in the form of the elegant Silver Ground Carpet and the distinctive micro Lozotaenia forsterana.

Others worth photographing included:

Others in the trap were several Small Magpies, a few examples of Oak Beauty agg, the usual Heart & Darts, several Flames and finally some tiddlers in the form of a Hedya of some sort, a Light Brown Apple Moth, several Codling Moths and a Clepsis consimilana.
