Chrysoclista linneella in Maidenhead

Two nights ago I ran an mv light in my Maidenhead garden and turned up a single specimen of the pretty Chrysoclista linneella, which has notable B status and is said to be very local.  I have seen it once before, again in my garden, but in 1989.  The larvae feed on lime, so if you have lime trees nearby it might be worth beating the branches or inspecting the trunk for this little moth.  Martin Albertini

  2. Splendid, my name in print twice!
