Moth Haul 05 July

N-nn-nineteen in the catch on Monday as Paul Hardcastle would say. An ever changing cast brought two new macros and three new micros for the garden, if my ID's are correct. The full rundown as follows:

0937 Agapeta hamana 1 - new
1002 Lozotaeinia forsterana 1 - new
1293 Garden Grass Veneer - 2
1334 Scoparia ambigualis - 2
1503 Platyptilia ochrodactyla 1 - new
1738 Common Carpet -1
1765 Barred Straw - 5
2128 Double Square-Spot 1
2136 Gothic 1 - new
2198 Smoky Wainscot 2
2339 Tawny Marbled Minor 1 -new
2340 Middle-barred Minor 1

19 moths, 12 species


0937 Agapeta hamana
1002 Lozotaenia forsterana

1503 Platyptilia ochrodactyla

2136 Gothic

2339 Tawny Marbled Minor

This last one is interesting and possibly incorrect. It has been pointed out that the Marbled Minors are difficult to separate though this one seems to show the bronzy sheen referred to on some Tawny Marbled Minor so I'm hoping that this one might just be one of those that can be done without resorting to dissection, comments welcome.
