|Metalampra italica, Westcott 10th July|
|Muslin Footman, Westcott 10th July|
Other species from last night worth mentioning were Limnaecia phragmitella, Lobesia abscisana, Leopard Moth, Brown Scallop, Slender Pug, Bordered Beauty, White Satin, Lesser Yellow Underwing, Shark, Waved Black & Dotted Fan-foot, but otherwise it was just lots of the common species already mentioned on these pages.
I also made a return visit to Bernwood Forest last night to trap in a different area to that which Peter Hall and I visited a week ago. In Shabbington Wood I was very pleased to get Beautiful Snout and Dotted Fan-foot, along with the expected Bernwood specialities of Rosy Footman, Small Black Arches & Common Fan-foot. Red-necked Footman and Scarlet Tiger appeared too, as did Phtheochroa inopiana which was again present in unprecedented numbers (77 between two traps!).
