Passenger, caught 23/9/2006 (National moth night).

Mothing at St Margaret's

Most of the Moth lists and Photographs are from my garden (TR359450) in the village of St Margaret's at Cliffe in Kent. It is situated about 1Km from the sea and has farmland with in 100 metres. The garden is well shrubbed and about 1600 sq metres. I normally run a 125 MV lamp and a 15W actinic light over-night and once the season gets going a couple of other traps. At the moment both are 25W black Lamps. previously I used a 160W blended lamp in one of them. All traps are home made. Trapping dates refer to the date the trap was put out.
I try and identify all the Macro Moths, with the micros I am not at all systematic, I do more than I used to with the help of the new book, but there are some that do get through.

Species List for 29/7/2014

Good to have a reasonable night, albeit a bit colder, down to 16 deg C, than the previous few nights. Another Cochylis species, but this one looked different around the head and thorax, being whiter. I've not chopped it up, but it looks more like pallidana to me. Altogether there were 404 moths of 72 species, of which there were 112 micro moths of 22 species.

 Amblyptilia punctidactyla

 Dark Spectacle

 Cochylis pallidana - My identification from pictures, I've not dissected it, as it now has its freedom.

 Lathronympha strigana
