At lunch-time on Wednesday I carried out a survey of a small field in Lower Arncott, Oxon in which there was a huge amount of common fleabane Pulicaria dysenterica. Found sitting on one of the flowers was an example of the micro-moth Apodia bifractella which, although supposedly common, I've not previously recorded. The task today was to find it in Bucks so this morning I went to the giant ditches at Greatmoor where I knew there was plenty of the food-plant and, sure enough, on the second patch of fleabane I looked at there were four active moths. The species is obviously under-recorded because this is only the second record for vc24. It is worth checking any patches of fleabane for this little moth just now - contrary to what the micro field guide states my limited experience this week shows that it can be seen at any time of day.
