Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.
The trap went on again for the night and due to a cooler night the moth numbers were lower but I still added five new species to the Garden list, I am fairly sure that I have caught the first two before here but they have gone unrecorded. 7765 (1937a) Peribatodes ilicaria (Lydd Beauty), 8062 (1690) Scopula imitaria (Small Blood-vein), 5652 (1413) Hypsopygia costalis (Gold Triangle), 0488 Reisserita chrysopterella and 5875 (1460) Apomyelois ceratoniae (Locust Bean Moth). Other uncommon moths in the trap were 4166 Dyspessa ulula, 9128 Odice arcuinna subsp pergrata and 2938 (0871a) Oegoconia caradjai.

These came with the regulars like 0661 (0234) Trichophaga tapetzella (Tapestry Moth), 1525 (0464) Plutella xylostella (Diamond backed Moth), 1655 (0720) Ethmia bipunctella, 2965 Symmoca nigromaculella, 3498 Mirificarma eburnella, 6604 (1361) Pyrausta aurata, 6690 Palpita vitrealis, 8186 (1714) Idaea degeneraria (Portland Ribbon Wave), 8509 (1825) Eupithecia centarueata (Lime-speck Pug), 8965 (2465) Tyta luctuosa (The Four-spotted), 9100 (2415) Acontia lucida (Pale Shoulder), 9425 Caradrina proxima and 10351 (2087) Agrotis segetum (Turnip Moth).
