June in Caldicot

Being new to moths, I recently started running an actinic trap in my garden near Caldicot Castle; over four separate evenings in June I trapped a total of 26 species. The most interesting were Bordered Straw on June 17 and a Small Ranunculus on June 30.

  1. Hi Marcus,
    very few people have trapped adult Small Ranunculus in the county - I think you are probably the 3rd. Lots of records of larvae though. Worth looking out for in the next few weeks on Prickly Lettuce which normally grows on disturbed soils/waste-ground.
