Following two Dotted Chestnuts in October last year, I have now taken three to my garden Robinson trap during March, more usual than the Autumn records.. It was interesting to read about the species possible link to the ant Lasius Fuliginosus which is also present in my garden. The adult has been found to overwinter in the ants nest. I always find the abdomen markings of the moth intriguing. I will have a look for the hairy larva later on.
Better night last night with Pale Pinion, Early Thorn, and Early Grey new for year.
