Possible Golden-rod Pug?

Postby JohnR on Mon Apr 05, 2021 9:56 am

In conversation with Steve H. he mentioned recently catching an early Golden-rod Pug. Having since looked at some images, and consulting Brian Hancock’s guide, I wonder if I might have caught one on 30th March. The larger of these two. Any opinions appreciated.

Cheers, John

Yes John,

An early first brood Golden-rod Pug. I caught a couple this time last year too.
The smaller Pug is a Double-striped if you didn't already know.

Regards
Greg
