Back to Mothing

So, I didn't record any moths last year and was much reduced the year before but this year I'm hoping to see how things have changed so the traps are out again.

Had a reasonable catch to the 15W actinic last night:
1524 Emmelina monodactyla 2
1663 March Moth (Alsophila aescularia) 3
1934 Dotted Border (Agriopis marginaria) 1
2187 Common Quaker (Orthosia cerasi) 5
2190 Hebrew Character (Orthosia gothica) 6
2243 Early Grey (Xylocampa areola) 1

Odd there were no Clouded Drabs.

March Moth Alsophila aescularia

Hebrew Character Xestia c-nigrum

Early Grey Xylocampa areola

Dotted Border Agriopis marginaria
