Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.

The nights are getting warmer and the Moths more numerous but still not large numers, this may partly be due to me just using the 15W actinic trap and not the 125MV. I still managed a few new species included 5626 (1416)) Pyralis lienigialis, 8490 (1818) Eupthecia irriguata ssp. eriguata (Marbled Pug) and 10457 Earias albovenosana.
Regulars included dozens of 5624 Pyralis obsoletalis, 5742 (1451a) Etiella zinckenella, 6208 Euchromius vinculellus, 8904 (2460) Dysgonia algira (Passenger), 9350 (2395) Synthymia fixa (The Gold Wing), 9425 Caradrina proxima, 8186 (1714) Idaea degeneraria (Portland Ribbon Wave), 8145 Idaea manicaria, 6700 (1399) Dolicharthria punctalis, 0469 Crassicornella agenjoi and 4x 6860 (1990) Hyles livornica (Striped Hawk-moth).
