Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping

Heliothis armigera (Scarce Bordered Straw).
Last night I made the decision to run the 125w MV lamp, what a mistake. I got up to find the trap, nearby plants and all the walls were swamped in small black beetles, literally 10s of thousands had been attracted in along with a few moths.
Clostera pigra (Small Chocolate-tip).
New species or first time identified moths included Heliothis armigera (Scarce Bordered Straw) x2 and a single Clostera pigra (Small Chocolate-tip).
Coscinia cribraria f. chysocephala (Speckled Footman).
Other species of note were Coscinia cribraria f. chysocephala (Speckled Footman), Leucochlaena oditis (Beautiful Gothic) and Tiger species Cymbalophora pudica.
Leucochlaena oditis (Beautiful Gothic).
