Cypress Pug, Kirby Muxloe (recorder Lyn Bull) - presumed first for VC55
No idea on the status in neighbouring counties at present, other than I know it has been recorded at least once in Northants in the last few years. Quite likely a recent colonist that's has moved in rather than a wanderer from afar, given the circumstance of the record.
Nothing quite so exciting in my garden traps, all standard fare including the now obligatory Scarce Bordered Straw ......
Scarce Bordered Straw
Subtly different to both of yesterday's in terms of markings .... and the complete lack of any wear on thorax! Two in the preceding 17 years, now five in a week.
Otherwise there is a subtle shift, still a lot of brown but some yellow coming in.
