Bugs, bugs, bugs

Not everything that arrives in a moth trap is a moth. Here are some recent visitors to the garden light trap.

A small Ichneumon perhaps Diplazon sp.

A Burying Beetle (Nicrophorus investigator)

One of the many forms of 2-Spot Ladybird, Adalia bipunctata

This large Ichneumon fly is a regular at light traps and the bad news for the moths is that it is ectoparasitic on their larvae.
Netellia testaceus

Capsid Bug

Nikon CP995.
