|Large Ranunculus, 21st September|
|Vestal, 29th September|
A couple of ID quandaries we're left with, which I'd be grateful if people were able to help with: it's been suggested (and I've tended to agree) that the following is a Campion, on the basis that its kidney-mark and oval do, more or less, seem to join - however, I've also had suggestions of Lychnis instead: any thoughts?
|Campion or Lychnis? 2nd September|
Secondly, this micro, from 10th September, seems to me to have an orangey head, which should make it a Prays ruficeps, as opposed to fraxinella - again, any thoughts gratefully received.
|Possible Prays ruficeps, 10th September|
Anyway, temperatures remain fairly decent overnight, so I hope for a few more decent catches (and as ever live in anticipation of our first ever Merveille du Jour: Death's-head Hawkmoth seems a much more distant prospect, although one was reported in August about eight miles west of us, so you never know).
