Lunchtime collecting

It wasn't what I was expecting when I turned up at Cullaloe at lunchtime, but after hanging around on one banking for the whole period I ended up with three moths - two micros and one which I think is a Shaded Broad Bar (sooo wrong). I also snagged a long-nosed member of the Cheilosia family of hovers as well as a Syrphid (the black and yellow waspy ones) and a smaller black job, which may turn out not to be a hover at all. On top of that I found Bugle in flower tucked away under a bush, so not a bad shift at all.

Ancylis badiana

Epermenia chaerophyllella


  1. Epermenia chaerophyllella for your unidentified micro :-)
