Moth Trapping, Granada Province.

Moths caught at Realenga de Agicampe.

Again I used the 15 Watt Actinic trap and attracted 2 more species to the garden, they were Scarce Silver-lines (Bena bicolorana) and Poplar Kitten (Furcula bifida). Other species caught included 2x Ethmia bipunctella, 12+ Cymbalophora pudica, 5+ Egyptian Bollworm (Earias insulana), Agrotis lata, Pale Shoulder (Acontia lucida), The Vestal (Rhodometra sacraria) and several Palpita unionalis.
The weather was a bit cooler than the previous nights, down to +8 and the wind was slightly stronger.
Photographs from the top: Poplar Kitten (Furcula bifida), Scarce Silver-lines (Bena bicolorana) and Ethmia bipunctella.
