Argyresthia semitestacella

Following Steve's success recording this species at Pipers Hill Common I visited the site on Mon 5th September with Sam and we spent 40 mins netting the beech but had just two Coptotriche marginea for our efforts. Returning to Halesowen at dusk I put the trap out (near to beech) as it was a warm night and was pleased to have a decent catch of micros which amazingly included Argyresthia semitestacella, a first record for the garden.    Patrick Clement
