Sunday June 18

A very warm night might have been expected leave me overwhelmed with moths in the bathroom. However, just one species entered. At least it was a new one for me.

Common Wave
It was a white moth, which meant I had to spend quite a time this morning sifting through several similar species of white Wave moths before concluding it was a Common Wave. The books suggest that this species is a little less common than the closely related Common White Wave, but the cross lines are wavier.

Later on today, during the evening, a vey small moth flew in through the kitchen window. It was potted and identified as Clepsis consimilana.

Another new species for me.
