....And another Pug

We set two traps in a mixed woodland further up our valley and caught a total of 11 species.  The most interesting was a new pug for us which after much consideration we decided was a Dwarf Pug.(fl 10mm) - with its large discal spot, strongly marked costa and dark band on the abdomen.  Any further opinions welcomed.

Other notable moths included Nut-tree Tussock, Barred Umber and Grey Birch.

  1. Dwarf Pug looks good, only 26 county records since 2000, 4 of which were last year including 1 from Betty in woodland near you.
