Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.

The trap was again run over night and another couple of new species were recorded with a couple more needing to be identified. The new species were Agrochola lychnidis (Beaded Chestnut) and Dryobotodes tenebrosa x3. Another species I do not catch often was Watsonalla uncinula which is very similar to the Oak hook-tip back in the UK. These were caught along with more usual species including Palpita vitrealis, Ethmia bipunctella, Uresiphita polygonalis, Menophora japygiaria, Rhodometra sacraria (The Vestal), Pseudozarba bipartite and a shed load of Earias insulana (Egyptian Bollworm) in different colour forms.
