Paul had a nice surprise when he checked his Weymouth garden moth trap back on 9/08/18. He found this rare micro moth, Ypsolopha alpella, FL. 7-9 mm, very local in Dorset and a new species for Paul’s garden records.
It is single brooded ,July/October and Oak trees are the caterpillars foodplant.
Paul often posts moth photos on twitter and @paulUpwey in the Twitter search box will find him.
