Lower Ochrwyth - 12 April

60 moths of 17 species came to MV.  New for year were: Nut-tree Tussock; Lesser Swallow Prominent; Lunar Marbled Brown; Least Black Arches; V-pug; Spruce Carpet and Caloptilia (betulicola?) - photo of latter follows, I would welcome views on species.

  1. Richard and I discussed the Caloptilia by email, and as it had white hindlegs we agreed it was C betulicola. There are 7 previous records from VC35, from 5 sites, but (as with many Micros) it is somewhat overlooked.
