Last night's warm cloudy and calm conditions were perfect for mothing and resulted in another record-breaking catch here in central Oxford, though as I've said before, the combination of my urban location and my Actinic lamp means that this comes in at a modest 126 moths. Plenty of NFY including the always-pleasing Buff-tip and a couple of NFG including The Phoenix and what I think is a Cherry Fruit Moth though this does require confirmation (see below) I've a few others for confirmation or ID as well.
|I presume that this is a rather worn Broad-barred White|
|Cherry Fruit Moth Argyresthia pruniella?|
|One of those pesky Coleophorids. Can any more be said about it?|
|Quite a distinctive white-headed micro which I can't seem to find|
