About the Arboretum
2nd August 2013
A very humid night = a trap full of moths! Gold Spangle (no photo) was a first since 1983. A few of the interesting ones are below plus a shieldbug - we don't just get moths in the trap!
Antler Moth. Its larvae can be a pest on grasslands.
Bird Cherry Ermine. Larvae live inside a communal web on the foodplant.
Dun Bar. Its larvae are unusual in being cannibalistic.
Small Yellow Wave
