First moth trap session of 2014

I've been rather late starting the mothing this year, not helped by breaking the only bulb I had for the trap and then taking an age to get around to ordering a replacement. Anyway, I finally ran the trap at home last night (18th/19th). Things were very quiet, no doubt partly due to a fairly clear night with an almost full moon rising in the early hours. I've identified the following from last night's catch so far (photographed today):

1 Light Brocade Lacanobia w-latinum
1 Buttoned Snout Hypena rostralis
3 Treble Lines Charanyca trigrammica
1 White Ermine Spilosoma lubricipeda
1 The Spectacle Abrostola tripartita
1 Shuttle-shaped Dart Agrotis puta
3 Freyer's Pug Eupithecia intricata
1 Grey Pine Carpet Thera obeliscata
1 Agonopterix yeatiana
