From the garden trap - 26/04/2008

Total catch 32 of 15sp.
(125W MV 10 of 7sp., 80W actinic 22 of 13sp.)

One of those nights when the actinic almost 100% beats the MV on both numbers and species. Once the total catch is getting up to say 25+ species I'll just give summaries and highlights.

Caloptilia elongella 1
Phyllonorycter blancardella 1
Semioscopis steinkellneriana 1
Agonopterix heracliana 1
Scrobipalpa acuminatella 1
Light Brown Apple Moth (Epiphyas postvittana) 4

Brindled Pug (Eupithecia abbreviata) 1

Caloptilia elongella - I like this quirky group of micros

Semioscopis steinkellneriana - if ever a moth needed a vernacular name ...
