Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.

A much quieter trap than expected after mailing with Penny Hale down at Casares about the big catches she has been having. I did get a few news species but so far I have only confirmed a single identification which was the brightly coloured 5889 Eurhodope cruentella. Other species included a very nice 6860 (1990) Hyles livornica (Striped Hawk-moth) and a couple of 9056 (2441) Autographa gamma (Silver Y), only the second 9298 Metopoceras felicina, 9100 (2415) Acontia lucida (Pale Shoulder), 8828 Raphia hybris, 9097 (2414) Emmelia trabealis (Spotted Sulphur) and plenty of 1525 (0464) Plutella xylostella (Diamond backed Moth). Hopefully I will sort out a few of the other and the garden list will grow some more.
