It comes to something when the best looking thing in the moth-trap is a caddisfly! This species is one of the few I can do in the field, a male Glyphotaelius pellucidus, the notch in the wing is distinctive. Moth trapping has been dire at Woods Mill this year (except perhaps for March). This is all we caught today:
Red-green Carpet 1 (photo)
Clouded Border 1
Brimstone 1
Streamer 1
Hebrew Character 9
Clouded Drab 3
Brindled Pug 2
Flame Shoulder 1
I hope this cold weather stops and the moths pick up!
