It was another good night with 88 macro moths of 29 species.  This included 3 Underwing species in the bait trap and 4 new backyard species for the year that I can confidently identify.  The new species were Mottled Quaker (Parastichtis suspecta), Neumogen's Quaker (Oligia egens), Obelisk Dart (Euxoa obeliscoides) and Finland Dart Moth (Actebia fennica).  The Obelisk Dart was a little worn but recognisable.
