As usual I decided to run the 15w trap and was pleased to find a drastic drop in the number of the black beetles which had been infesting the trap recently.
Along with a few beetles there were a number of new species for the garden, these included Cynaeda dentalis, Peribatodes umbraria, Scopula ornata (Lace border) and Stilbia andalusiaca.
|Earias insulana (Egyptian Bollworm).|
Other species were Trichophaga tapetzella (Tapestry Moth), Hellula undalis (Old World Webworm), Microloxia herbaria, Cladocerotis optabilis, Leucochlaena oditis (Beautiful Gothic), Episema glaucina, Pseudozarba bipartita, Idaea degeneraria (Portland Ribbon Wave), a dozen or more Earias insulana (Egyptian Bollworm), Coscinia cribraria f. chysocephala (Speckled Footman) and Utetheisa pulchella (Crimson Speckled).
