New Moths Found on 30 July 2005

Forward to 7 August 2005 moth page, back to 23 July 2005 moth page, to general moths page.

A warmish night and this time an interesting catch of micro's.  There were a large number of Mother of Pearl, Dark Arches, Riband Waves, Pinion-streaked Snouts, Scoparia Pyrallela and Lesser Broad-boardered Yellow Underwings.  Then came the Shuttle-shaped Darts, Endotricha flammealis, Common Footman, Common Quakers, Dot Moths, Bright-line Brown-eyes and Heart and Dart.

There were also single representatives of Peppered Moth, Cloaked Minor, Straw Underwing, Dagger, Single-dotted Wave, Shears, Scalloped Oak, Spectacle (a head-shot to show it's peculiar hair-do and false eye markings below), Common Rustic and Ruby Tiger.

The other interesting micro's this time around were Trachycera advenella, Pseudargyrotoza conwagana, Celypha striana and photographed here Cnephasia Agg, Phycitodes agg. (looks most like maritima to me), Scoparia subfusca, a White-shouldered House Moth and a Blastobasis lignea.  Thanks to Steve Lister and Brianhstone for help with the IDs.
