Have you got a pic of the semipurpurella Andy? You don't often get them to light.Also I think they need dissecting to separate them from sangii.

AndyC said...

Yep Charlie I mised off the question mark,I still have the moth in question if want a go at dissecting it.?

Hi All. I have had Eriocrania in my light trap but since no gen det carried out could be either. Andy did you get a pic of A. hyemana?

a splendid night out. surpsised we did so well considering the conditions.


AndyC said...

I think Bri took the A. hyemana,yep it was only 1 degree when we left,its a great spot.

I think I'll pass on that Andy, it's beyond my skill and knowledge at the moment.Semipurpurella is a common enough leaf miner so unless you want to send it off to Harry I'd let it go.Nice record though.

Knot Wood if full of Birch and may well be worth a eriocrania leaf mining session when the leaves come out.
