Yellow-legged Clearwing

I have tried some pheromone traps in my garden on a few occasions this summer, without success. I therefore tried again yesterday afternoon with fairly low expectations of catching anything, but much to my surprise a Yellow-legged Clearwing was lured to my VES trap.
The 2 photos below are not the best in the world, but hopefully the red band on each forewing and the yellow legs are clearly visible.

  1. Hello Steve, well done. Your results are typical of most of us who have tried using pheromones - lots of attempts then a rare success story!
