Twenty-plume Moth

Not exactly a warm evening but impatience and the fact that I can't trap tomorrow night got the better of me and I put the trap out, I ended up with 12 moths most of which appear to be the same ones everyone else is getting(fed up of). Hiding at the bottom of the trap and very nearly missed was a micro which I'm guessing is a Twenty-plume Moth but I could be wrong....again!
 The trap was out from 8:10pm to 3am

5 Early Grey
2 Common Quaker
1 Small Quaker
2 Hebrew Character
1 Clouded Drab
1 Twenty-plume


  1. Twenty-plume it is Ian. I`ve not seen one yet, this year.

  2. Hi Dean, it's the first one I've seen and from photos I somehow expected it to be much larger.
