Micros requiring confirmation

Postby A_Neal on Sat Jul 24, 2021 9:01 am

Hi all,

Can someone confirm these micros.

Also, last night I caught 24 Box-Tree Moths, has anyone else caught large numbers of them recently?


Palipta vitrealis?

Endotricha flammealis?

Nice finds Alex
I've been expecting Endotricha flammealis to arrive for some time. There is an old record of several at Carrington in 1922 which I've always thought was rather odd as none were found subsequently but yours will be the first confirmed county record.
I've not had Box-tree moth myself yet, although a few recorders on the Cheshire Moth Facebook Group are mentioning catching them but only in small numbers.
