Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.

The temperature was a bit better last night at +11 and this meant a few more moths than a few nights ago when it only managed to stay at +5. There were a couple of species that were new for the list but they still need to be named, these came along with some species which I do not record regularly including 9350 (2395) Synthymia fixa (The Gold Wing) x1, 8904 (2460) Dysgonia algira (Passenger) x1 and 7581 Gnopharmia stevenaria x 2.
Other more regular Moths were 6719 (1398) Nomophila noctuella (Rush Veneer) x 10+, 1525 (0464) Plutella xylostella (Diamond backed Moth) x 5+, 3036 Stibaromacha ratella x3, 9370 (2400) Heliothis armigera (Scarce Bordered Straw), 3264 Isophrictis anthemidella x 5+, 4350 Cochylis epilinana, 5144 (1261) Cydia pomonella (Codling Moth), 5614 Synaphe antennalis, 6604 (1361) Pyrausta aurata x 10+, 8965 (2465) Tyta luctuosa (The Four-spotted) x5+, 9100 (2415) Acontia lucida (Pale Shoulder) x1 and 10528 (2053) Coscinia cribraria f. chysocephala (Speckled Footman) x 3.
