Moth list pushes up total

This nice Bordered White was a new species to the reserve on Saturday night, along with Elachista argentella and Tinea semifulvella. 141 new species for the reserve so far this year, which considering the target was 200 is pretty well ahead of schedule. Cracking moth, too.

If you go down in the woods today...

A foray with the FGSES at Cullaloe on Sunday produced a good scattering of plant pathogens and the occasional mushroom

No doubt when all is counted there will be a nice boost to the fungal list for the reserve in addition to non fungal species already added - Diamondback Moth is a nice new one as part of a recent influx. Other vascular plants may also emerge as new additions.
