Caloptilia cuculipennella

Caloptilia cuculipennella
          I went to the first Kinver Edge trapping session of 2017 last night but with temperatures around 7°C it was not brilliant and my 3 traps recorded just 18 species. So it was just as well I potted this Caloptilia cuculipennella from my drive, just as I was going out, my third record here at Halesowen.

    1. Well, I go to all the trouble of posing the moth on one of it's food plants (ash) and you think it's my kneecap!
