Lee Mount

One micro from last night - a bit worn c10mm and wondered about Carcina quercana  maybe - amended below.
 Tachystola acroxantha
 
Not a lot else this week just one or two Red-green Carpets, November Moth agg, 1 Angle Shades and a few Common Marbled Carpets and a Silver Y

That's quite a scarce moth you have there Dave - it's Tachystola acroxantha. There's only a handful of Yorkshire records and was only added to the county list in 2012!

Thanks Charlie - that's greatly appreciated. It's great to learn something new - (every day with a bit of luck.!!
I have found it now in the micro Field Guide !

I always follow with interest how our records mirror a species' march northwards, colonising new areas. Thanks for posting.
