Another thundery night, with warm, still, air between the showers, so I got another large batch of moths to light.
A nice pairing of the dark form of White Ermine - Spilosoma lubricipeda - (left) and Clouded Border - Lomaspilis marginata - (right).
Four new species for me: Buff Arches - Habrosyne pyritoides.
Barred Straw - Eulithis pyraliata:
Beautiful Golden Y - Autographa pulchrina:
The Flame - Axylia putris.
And one that I had last year: Heart and Dart - Agrotis exclamationis:
When you're out for a walk at the moment and you see a small cream moth flying along and then hiding upside down under leaves or grass, this is probably the culprit: Straw Dot - Rivula sericialis.
