Just finished checking through the egg trays from last night's efforts. Two new garden species being discovered in the process. Barred Hook-tip was actually on the outside of the trap when I turned it off at 05.25 hrs.
The Brindled Plume (Amblyptilia punctidactyla) was found later and has quite a characteristic pose which is not shown in any of the literature I have. It was only when I perused UKmoths that I was finally confident with my id.
As seems to be the case, recently, there is always something which causes much head scratching and today it was another Plume sp.
