Saturday 8 September 2012

A warmer night produced 23 moths 16 species. There were no new species for the year but I did photograph a very fresh looking False Pinion (Litholomia napaea). Litholomia napaea is another hibernator which is normally one of the first moths that I see in spring and one of the last that I see in autumn. My earliest record of a False Pinion is the 8th of April while my latest is the 17th October.
