Another fairly quiet night with only two moths in the bait trap!  In total, there were 33 macro moths of 17 species.  Two species were new for the year, Dusky Silver Y (Syngrapha octoscripta) and Pale Enargia (Enargia decolor).  I'm staying in a cabin in the Twin Butte (Waterton Provincial Park) area for a few days now so will blog any interesting moths that turn up.  It's very hot and dry here, although, I suspect the temperature will drop fairly quickly overnight.
