Hartlebury Common, 15th July

Rosy Footman
Bordered Pug

Four of us trapped at Hartlebury last night and although initially breezy with well broken cloud, conditions improved and we had a good selection of moths with over 100 species in my two traps.

Macros included Plain Wave, Oak Eggar, White Satin, Small Scallop and Vapourer Moth while good specimens of Rosy Footman and Bordered Pug were chosen for photographs.

A good night for micros with a handful still to determine - the best from my traps being Chionodes distinctella (2 individuals caught) and Ptycholomoides aeriferana.

  1. Nice records. I've never seen Chionodes distinctella.
