In the meantime, here are some big beetles that turned up at moth traps on Saturday night ..
Great Diving Beetle at Cossington Meadows - a superb big female
Lesser Stag Beetle - another one from Cossington, and very nice too.
Both of the above definitely fall into the category of non-lepidopteran insects in moth traps that I think of as 'mothing mates' - ones I like to see.
Unlike this smelly bastard ..
A burying beetle, Nicrophorus investigator from the garden trap. Looks nice, smells bad, infested with mites all over the abdomen. A 'mothing villain'.
