Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.
Again I ran the 15 Watt Actinic trap in the garden and caught a reasonable haugle, most were the usual but a couple were new but are away (the photo's not the Moths) with Penny Hale for her to cast her expert eye over. Other more interesting species were 3498 Mirificarma eburnella, 8211 (1716) Rhodometra sacraria (The Vestal) this was the first for a while, 9140 (2407) Eublemma ostrina (Purple Marbled) usually quite common but again the first for some time and singles of 9454 (2384) Hoplodrina ambigua (Vine's Rustic) and 10015 (2206) Mythimna vitellina (The Delicate).
Penny also confirmed a couple of new species this week, they were Archips xylosteana (Variegated Golden Tortrix), Earias albovenosana and the one I had not been able to do was 7961 (1664) Aplasta ononaria (The Rest Harrow).

Photographs from the top: Hoplodrina ambigua (Vine's Rustic), Mythimna vitellina (The Delicate) and Aplasta ononaria (The Rest Harrow).
