Night of 16th Feb 2017

Moth trap out at last and it seem like an age, not many moths as you would expect just 5 in fact with 5 different species, the Stunning and first for garden Acleris cristana was the highlight the very large coarse-scaled tuft situated towards the end of the discal cell on the forewing is a dead giveaway. One moth still to be confirmed, picture below and will confirm which Acleris if able to determine by picture otherwise may need dissection.

Off out with the group tonight and will put the trap out again and will update tomorrow.

73.244 [B&F: 2187] Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi)



70.251 [B&F: 1930] Oak Beauty (Biston strataria)


70.245 [B&F: 1663] March Moth (Alsophila aescularia)



49.076 [B&F: 1054] Acleris cristana


To be confirmed Acleris ???
