Chaddesley Wood Addendum

Acleris ferrugana female

Steve mentioned 'at least one Acleris ferrugana' from Chaddesley Wood, well it turned out, following dissection, that both specimens were A. ferrugana, despite the male being taken from an area which was predominately birch and no oak. An infinitely variable species requiring dissection to separate it from A. notana.

  1. It would be no good me betting on the Grand National - even if there were only 2 runners!
