Couple of recent trappings

Postby bobhelencoan on Mon Apr 26, 2021 10:51 am

Like everyone else not much happening in the trap but would like opinions on the three below.
Swallow prominent ( not lesser swallow prominent)
Agonopterix arenella, (saw similar one recently on the web labelled as agonopterix subpropinquella)
Finally found crawling around when gardening. Think it is a deformed female Pale Tussock.
Bob & I continue to take our local walks but local landowners seem to have recently enjoyed cutting down trees and severely cutting even removing hedges. Sad.
Take care everyone. Bob & Helen

Hi Bob & Helen
I agree with Swallow Prominent.
Agonopterix subpropinquella lacks the pale shoulders. I reckon yours is Agonopterix propinquella .
Regards
Steve
