2013 Whetstone Update
Back in this post I included a garden first record of a Biselachista sp. that I suspected would be a VC55 first record of Biselachista utonella. Whilst I don't keep a personal collection of set specimens, I will retain moths that really need a gen det to confirm and this one was duly kept in the fridge. It has now been done by Jon Clifton (I can't really do critical micro dets) who has confirmed my ID. Yet another confirmed VC55 first micro from my really very ordinary and quite small suburban garden!
