Whilst walking Norland Moor this morning between 8am and 9.30am Sue and I spotted several small moths flying around the heather in the sunshine. I caught one of these and potted it up to check the species when I got home. Turns out to be a new species for me and perhaps Calderdale in being Philedonides lunana, a member of the Tortricinae. The species exhibits sexual dimorphism in that the males and females are completely different looking. The only moths we saw were males as shown in the photo (borrowed from Ian Kimbers website). The moth is common in Yorkshire in the right habitat (heather) so it might be worth checking out heather moorland near you when the sun reappears again later in the week. I think we were rather lucky this morning in that it was very still and sunny an unusual combination in February in Calderdale ! I am still surprised I have never recorded it before as its flight period is supposed to be from March to May.
