After 11 nights in Crete I came back home to a much busier moth trap, on Wednesday June 1st my year total stood at 65 species. Now just 9 days later it is 117 species. A couple of interesting moths on Thursday, my first ever Alder Moth that looks like f suffusa, also a Knotgrass maybe the dark, s salicis form?
Alder Moth, f suffusa?
Knotgrass, f salicis
Also got 2 micros I will be grateful of help with, I think the first is Tinea pallescentella, it has a WL of 8mm,
And the second looks like a Cydia, closest I can come up with is illutana but it says very local the field guide so probably wrong. FW length is 5mm.
Like every one else I'm still getting invaded by Diamondbacks, 32 in the trap last night, but a lot more all around the garden. Lacking in HawkMoths here, only 2 Poplars this year so far
