Aethes sp?

Postby shearwater on Sun Jul 07, 2019 2:50 pm

Hi All

Was greeted by this rather dapper micro this morning. Pretty sure its one of the Aethes spp but dosent look distictive enough to actually give it a name.
Any ideas?
Cheers
Rob

Hi
To answer my own query I've just discovered that this is Small Marbled! Found by catching up on previous posts missed whilst being on Bardsey Island last week.

Cheers

Well done...!

This is the third report I'm aware of now, date-dependent, this one is either the 2nd, 3rd or 4th Cheshire record :-)

Cheers,
Steve
