Eek, a Mouse!
Mouse Moth was pretty common at Dingestow between 1994 and 2006, with 1 or 2 annually, but then it vanished. It's possible this was because I switched from a Blended MV-Tungsten trap, but I think this was a genuine disappearance. Anyway, The Mouse is back - one came to MV at Dingestow Court on 18th July 2017.
Supporting cast included an Ear Moth sp., a Gold Spot, September & Canary-shouldered Thorns, and more than 30 species of Micro, including lots of Yponomeuta rorella, a chalk-streaked Crambus selasella, and a couple of Catoptria falsella.
