Arriving home after the fun of yesterday afternoon I was offered some photos for the website,the first a big thrill from the Hampshire/Dorset border where a lovely photo of a Small Eggar caught in a light trap on the evening of 2 April from Peter Allen, which was accepted with full gratitude, so thank you very much for that one Peter.Another new species for the website.
I almost dont have to say where the second series of photos came from but of course I'm always grateful for the help that Tim has given me and this website. A series of add on photos from previous photos supplies including a new species for the website which goes under the category of Appendix B - Questionable Records in the new "A checklist of the Lepidoptera of the British Isles" by Agassiz,Beavan,& Heckford for records that are unconfirmed or erroneous in the British Isles. The moth in question is the Middle Lace Border with a number of B58 which shows at the end of the moth index or systematic list. All photos were taken in Spain and all come under the new numbering system.Unusual and handsome moths worthy of a second look.
I have added Tim's photo of a Small Eggar Larval nest with a rather unsavoury character having his will, so apologies if you are about to have breakfast.
