My moth year begins!

Yes, at last, my moth year begins with this lovely little moth found in the firewood shack at the bottom of the garden, Agonopterix yeatiana. A micro-moth of about 1cm in length usually found near the coast, but frequent all year.

So, the first one for Suffolk according to the table. Lets hope there are many, many more to come :)

  1. Oops! I stand corrected. My CMR has just got back to me and apparently it's A. arenella, not yeatiana. Very similar, except for a tiny white dot that I missed.
