Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province.

Three new species for the garden Moth list.

I ran the trap for the first time up on the terrace and caught three new species. Singles of  9051 (2436) Macdunnoughia confusa (Dewick's Plusia), 7985 Chlorissa faustinata and 10156 (2117) Eugnorisma glareosa (Autumnal Rustic).
