Choreutis pariana

Caloptilia semifascia

Lyonetia clerkella

I've had a particularly productive time sweeping Worcester Uni's evergreen trees for overwintering moths in recent days, with these three smart micros being the highlights. The campus moth trap is also starting to produce the goods, with 12 moths of 7 species recorded on Wednesday night - new for year being Common Quaker, Early Thorn, Clouded Drab and Amblyptilia acanthadactyla.

  1. Very interesting post Bill, I must try more sweeping here. I don't see semifascia in Halesowen, most records are from Worcester area, mainly the garden of Steve W!
