Cydia amplana at Undy

Keith Jones has just emailed me this photo of a Cydia amplana that he caught this week in Undy.  This is only the second VC35 record of this scarce migrant Tortricid (the Vagrant Piercer) following one that Martin Anthoney caught in August 2005.  Several others have been caught in SW England over the last few days, so Keith's record fits the overall pattern of arrivals on the recent southerly airflow.  Well done Keith!

  1. Some nice moths in Mons recently. I`m jealous, as usual! I`ve been on the look-out for Cydia amplana too, but with no luck.
