A few autumn moths

Moth numbers have been pitifully low at the light over the last week or so, with several nights without a single moth! Despite some warm and sunny days, temperatures have been dropping sharply in the evenings. Best of a very sparse bunch have been:

Pine Carpet Thera firmata - 1 on 27/28 September
Red-green Carpet Chloroclysta siterata - 29/30 September
Diamond-back Moth Plutella xylostella - 1 on 27/28 September
Hoary Footman Eilema caniola - 1 on 29/30 September
