New Moths Found on 18 June 2006

Forward to 25 June 2006 moth page, back to 11 June 2006 moth page, to general moths page.

Overnight the temperature didn't go much below 20 C.  Loads of stuff in the trap with Heart & Darts, Green Pugs, and a newcomer for the year, the Green Oak Tortrix (previously seen here), predominating.  Aside from that there were several examples each of Udea Olivalis, Shuttle-shaped Dart, Riband Wave (both with and without the dark band), Treble Brown SpotCommon Footman, Clouded Silver, Common Wainscot, Oak Beauty Agg, Pinion-streaked Snout, Scoparia pyrallela, Light Brocade and Clepsis consimilana

Others worth photographing even though we've seen them before were the Light Emerald (previously seen here), Large Fruit-tree Tortrix (previously seen here), Small Magpie (previously seen here), Buff Arches (previously seen here), Barred Yellow (previously seen here) and Bright-line Brown-eye (previously seen here).  We also had our first representative of the Large Yellow Underwing (previously seen here).

Finally, there were two micros - Celypha lacunana and Gypsonoma dealbana (thanks to tom tams for the ID).
