110 moth sp and some goodies

A successful moth morning at Strumpshaw on Saturday saw 110 species, a decent haul to look through and it did take a little longer than the allotted event time (I overran by an hour!) but while there were still moths to show I was happy to look through them.

The trap was roughly 70/40 Macro:micro split, the macros were good but it was the micros that really held the interest (for me).

The highlights were a 1st for the 10k square and a first for the reserve, Biselachista albidella and crambus ulignosellus, other new for me were elachista maculicerusella. A tortrix -phalonidia udana or manniana was also taken, udana is a newly discovered species so it would be great to get this, however gen det is needed to be sure, so I may hang on to that one for someone else to have a closer look (dad?).
we had the reedbed pyralid quintet as well as the following; I'm aware there may be limited interest in the following, but it took me a while to id them all so thought i'd share it!
