An interesting catch on Tuesday night saw a similar amount of moths grace the trap and sheet as the previous night, with another mild night ahead but rain predicted overnight I was hopeful of at least something of interest.
I wasn't let down with two Tachystola acroxantha's potted up off of my white sheet behind the trap just before bedtime at 9.30pm, these two moths being my 2nd and 3rd records for the garden this year of this quite pretty member of the Clothes moth family, and being from that family they are never the most co-operative of moths when trying to photograph them as I found out this morning!
These moths like the LBAM (Epiphyas postvittana) originate from Australia.
Also of note was my joint latest specimen of Willow Beauty, a tiny individual that was checked for the rare migrant Feathered Beauty that sometimes appears along the South Coast at this time of year.
