Mijas, Malaga Province and Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

A few identification updates.

First comes the Orchid that Juan and I found down near Mijas earlier this year which we were farily sure was a hybrid between Ophrys Scolopax and O. tenthredinifera (Ophrys x peltieri), I sent a copy of the flower to Michael Lowe and he confirmed our identification.
Penny Hale did a couple of Moths that I had caught back on the 9th April which turned out to be a micro called 3264 Isophrictis anthemidella and the Geometroidea 8328 Nebula ibericata.
I also sent another one off to Martin Corley which he kindly sorted out as 8638 (1871) Lithostege griseata (Grey Carpet) all three species were new for the garden list.
Photographs from the top: Ophrys x peltieri, Isophrictis anthemidella, Nebula ibericata and Lithostege griseata.
