Micro Puzzle

Postby MPStanyer on Thu Apr 01, 2021 7:10 pm

A good night (for March anyway) on Tuesday . 61 moths of 18 species , including some I haven't previously recorded in March including Oak Nycteoline, Pale Pinion, Pine Beauty & Water Carpet. I also caught this micro 8-9mm in length which I have been unable to put a name to. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
Martyn

Hi Martyn
It'll be the very variable Ypsolopha ustella
