I’ve had the light trap out 6 times since April 2nd and have recorded 27 moths of 4 species. 21 of these were Speckled Green Fruitworm moths (Orthosia hibisci). 1 of the species, a Western Woodling (Egira rubrica), was recorded in Lethbridge on the 9th April. This appears to be quite an early Alberta record. Given the recent warm weather I wouldn’t be at all surprised if I see a few more early records.
The other species were the expected:
False Pinion - Litholomia napaea
Western Swordgrass - Xylena thoracica
