Before leaving, I decided to have a quick search around the old oaks at Hallow church - a single Phyllonorycter muelleriella found its way into the net as did my first Pseudargyrotoza conwagana of the year. Perhaps the most interesting find was this Pauper Pug which I disturbed from oak whilst searching for P. muelleriella. It is on its way to Patrick (via Steve) for dissection, but if confirmed I'm guessing this is yet another new site for this species, and possibly the closest to Worcester yet?
