Realenga de Agicampe, Huétor Tajar, Granada Province.

Moth Trapping.

A few more species in the trap last night including a 1525 (0464) Plutella xylostella (Diamond backed Moth) x1 with out the usual markings (thanks Dave Gundy would never have sorted that one), 10351 (2087) Agrotis segetum (Turnip Moth) x 1 and 9436 (2388) Caradrina flavirena (Lorimer's Rustic) x2. There were also several moths which I had originally Ided as 10343 (2092) Agrotis puta puta (Shuttle Shaped Dart) but Dave thinks that they could be 10342 (2092a) Agrotis catalaunalis / syricola (Grouville Dart). Also in the trap there was a Nycteola siculana a new species for the garden.

Photographs from the topPlutella xylostella (Diamond backed Moth), Agrotis segetum (Turnip Moth), Caradrina flavirena (Lorimer's Rustic), Agrotis puta puta (Shuttle Shaped Dart) or Agrotis catalaunalis / syricola (Grouville Dart) and Nycteola siculana.
