Minimal Mothing

There is always a bit of a lull in the number of moths about in mid-April. The early spring broods have just finished and the rush of different species to come don't really get going until the end of the month. Even so things have been rather slower than last year. But it isn't all bad news.

Powdered Quaker Orthosia gracillis

The Streamer Anticlea derivata

Brimstone Moth Opistograptis luteolata

Garden Carpet Xanthorhoe fluctuata

Skin Moth Monopis laevigella

Acrolepia autumnitella (probably the 5th for VC31)

Nikon CP995
