Realenga de Agicampe, Granada Province, Spain.

Moth Count. 
 
I ran the Actinic trap in the garden, not many species but a nice selection which included 6496 Evergestis isatidalis x3, 9462 Spodoptera littoralis (Mediterranean Brocade) x1, 6690 Palpita vitrealis x2, 9454 Hoplodrina ambigua (Vine's Rustic) x1, 9565 Agrochola lychnidis (Beaded Chestnut) x7, 9684 Allophyes alfaroi x1, 10096 Noctua pronuba (Large Yellow Underwing) x2 and 10351 Agrotis segetum (Turnip Moth) x1.
The variablity of Agrochola lychnidis (Beaded Chestnut) make it hard to get them sorted but thanks to the experts on The Moths of Spain (Las polillas de España) facebook page for their help, I will get there in the end.
