Moths number increasing

I haven’t had the backyard light trap out a great deal recently but last night there were 12 moths of 7 species.  They included an Atlantic Arches Moth (Lacanobia atlantica) which I believe is only the second time I have recorded this species.

In spite of some warm weather, May was a very quite month for moths but I have included a smart looking Anarta farnhami which was in the trap on the 28th.  The Celery Looper (Anagrapha falcifera) and what I believe is an Alien Probole (Probole alienaria) were recorded on the 6th June.

The moth numbers are definitely on the rise.
