From the garden trap - 20/06/2008

Total catch 58 of 27sp.
(125W MV 27 of 18sp., 80W actinic 31 of 16sp.)

First for year in garden:
Barred Straw (Eulithis pyraliata) 1

Double Square-spot (Xestia triangulum) 1
Uncertain (Hoplodrina alsines) 1
Beautiful Hook-tip (Laspeyria flexula) 1
Highest counts:
Heart and Dart (Agrotis exclamationis) 12

Beautiful Hook-tip - actually a noctuid. As for the vernacular, it's all in the eye of the beholder I guess!
