Atishoo

Ran the garden traps last night, against my better judgement considering the conditions, but all turned out okay with a nice fresh one of these ...

Six-striped Rustic

Square-spot Rustics - expecting these very outing for the next few weeks now. These go down in the notebook as XEXAN - much easier to type into the database for speed.


The only other thing to mention is that the Phyllonorycter kleemannella from 01/08 is indeed a first for VC55. Sadly it croaked before I got a decent shot, but here it is on the other side of life.

Well done Mark,

The Tissue is rarer than Scarce Tissue in VC30!
