So far this year I have record 26 species of macro moth in my backyard.  For the same period last year I had only recorded 8 species.  Presumably the mild winter in Alberta has had an impact. To reinforce this point, last nights 2 macros are almost a month earlier than my previous records for these species.  I'm hoping that this bodes well for the rest of year.  The 2 macros in my trap last night, in spite of the the stormy weather, where Morrison's Pero (Pero morrisonaria) and Brown-streaked Rustic (Hypocoena rufostrigata).
