There were 94 moths of 28 species in the traps last night.  Nothing too exiting but I've attempted to put tentative id's two Euxoa species.  I'm calling the first Euxoa campestris rather than declarata because of the overall darker wing colouring.  The second I'm calling Euxoa servita rather than auripennis because the inner margin of the dark terminal area streaks heavily into the subterminal area with a couple of streaks almost reaching the reniform spot.
