New Moths Found on 23 July 2005

Forward to 30 July 2005 moth page, back to 16 July 2005 moth page, to general moths page.

A cool damp night, hence a small catch.  New in the trap was Celypha striana and a Chinese Character with its bizarrely unique bird-poo pose. Aside from that, we had one Poplar Hawk Moth and then a smattering of all the usual suspects for this time of year (Pinion-streaked Snouts, Common Quakers, Dot Moths, Bright-line Brown-eyes, Dark Arches, Riband Waves, Common Footman, Heart and Dart, Least Carpets, Scoparia Pyrallela, Shuttle-shaped Darts and Endotricha flammealis).  Worth photographing were a Small Emerald (previously seen here), another Peppered Moth (previously seen here) and a lovely purple Campion (previously seen here).
