Garden Moths (2)

There was another interesting selection of moths in my garden last night. They included a Spectacle (Abrostola tripartita), a Clouded Bordered Brindle (Apamea crenata), a Coxcomb Prominent (Ptilodon capucina), a Knot Grass (Acronicta rumicis), a Small Magpie (Eurrhypara hortulata) and three Brimstone (Opisthograptis luteolata), all pictured in earlier garden moth pieces.

Moths new to the garden, or at least new to the trap, were ...

Swallow Prominent (Pheosia temula)

Peppered Moth (Biston betularia)

Clouded Border (Lomaspilis Marginata)

Bordered White (Bupalus piniaria)

Flame Shoulder (Ochropleura plecta)

Dusky Brocade (Apamea remissa)

Brown Rustic (Rusina ferruginea)

There was also this slightly damaged Silver Ground Carpet (Xanthorhoe montanata) and two others, Pugs I think, which I've yet to identify ...

The moth trap really is coming along a treat Emma, what a wonderful selection of species you've seen so far. I especially like the side profile of the Swallow Prominent. Linda

Nice pics but hope the moth mania doesn't stop the cream tea postings! Was talking to Tom Tams the county recorder today and he would appreciate any of your records for his data base.
Damsels and emeralds flying at Bellasis today.

Excellent set again Emma.
So many night time beauties most of us never see.

The Peppered Moths are great creatures I think, very impressive! I am pleased you are doing well up there...
