New Moths Found on 11 May 2008

Forward to 24 May 2008 moth page, back to 27 April 2008 moth page, to general moths page.

Spring is over and we're into summer now. Despite a very warm weekend, mid 20's centigrade, there were only nine moths in the trap.  However they were each a different species and included no less than five varieties that were new to us.  The newbies where the impressively furry/swirly-patterned Puss Moth, the large Scalloped Hazel, the very bark-like Waved Umber, the striking Red Twin-spot Carpet and the, umm, common Common Pug.  Others in the trap were:
