Moth Trapping, Granada Province.

Moths caught at Realenga de Agicampe.

The second nights trapping was carried out with the 125 MV lamp, a much brighter light which attracted in some nice species and a lot of not so nice bitting chaps. Again Small Marbled (Eublemma parva) was the commonest species with about 30 in and around the trap, along with 8 Menophra japygiaria and a dozen or so The Vestal (Rhodometra sacraria). A single Emerald Species Chlorissa etruscaria and 2 The Passenger (Dysgonia algira) were both found on the vegitation around the light. Four-spotted (Tyta luctuosa), Boarded Straw (Heliothis peltigera), Cresent Dart (Agrotis trux), Palpita unionalis, Stibaromacha ratella and Antigastra catalaunalis were also seen.
