Pembury, 23rd May

Scorched Carpet - Just plain stunning to see!

Least Black Arches - A locally distributed species.

Eulia Ministrana - A rather striking micro.

Foxglove Pug - The larvae feed inside the flowers of Foxglove - surprise, surprise!

Scalloped Hazel - One of three in the trap this morning.
The Miller - A common moth occuring throughout Great Britain, Ireland and the Channel Islands. It is very variable with the whitest forms usually occuring in Scotland.
I'm still waiting to trap any species of hawkmoth, so the trap went out again at my dads house and produced a splendid selection of moths.
