Lower Ochrwyth - 26 May

I set the MV for a couple of hours last night - 32 species, comprising 60 moths:

Brimstone x2, Silver Ground Carpet, Common Marbled Carpet x10, Flame Carpet x2, Water Carpet, Red Twin-spot Carpet, White Pinion Spotted, Clouded Silver x3, Rivulet, Straw Dot, Brown Silver Lines x4, Small Phoenix x2, Flame Shoulder x2, Iron Prominent x2, Coxcomb Prominent, Small Angle Shades x2, Setaceous Hebrew Character, Flame x2, Pale Tussock x2, Treble Lines, White Ermine, Heart & Dart x3, Pebble Hook-tip, Marbled Minor, Common Pug, Brindled Pug, Clouded bordered Brindle x6, Small Magpie, Incurvaria oehlmanniella, Depressaria daucella, Dioryctria abietella, Apple Fruit Moth

Earlier in the day the Green-veined Butterfly below was feeding on Rhododendron - I suppose the plant has some benefit locally, but ...... Also, found the caterpillar below - Grey Arches perhaps?  It clearly has some parasites on it, possibly two different species - has anyone any thoughts on what these might be?
