300 Up (ish)

Haven't posted any garden mothing updates recently. Mainly as there have hardly been any trap summaries to post. Last night was a slight improvement though, and the catch included a new micro for the garden. With the micro list standing at 296 + 3 almost certain additions pending gen det, then this will technically be the 300th garden micro. So - what was it? A really smart Pyralid, or one of the really colourful and metallic species ....

err, no. It was this

Capua vulgana

Not the smartest tortrix, but a new one for the garden all the same. Tonight looks like being the best mothing conditions for a long while so I'm hopeful of a decent garden catch to make a worthwhile update tomorrow.
