The weather has been a little bit milder so I put the moth trap out last night. It attracted several large Click beetles and half a dozen large Black Scarab beetles. It also pulled in a Yellow Admiral Butterfly at about 10:30pm. This is not that unusual as I've had butterflies in the trap before. In Scotland I occasionally found Red Admirals in the trap. Surprisingly, a few moths also made an appearance.
Edit: I originally had the white Lymantriid shown below listed as Acyphas semiochrea. I received an email explaining why it is in fact Euproctis melanosoma. Thanks for the correction.
All up, aside from the beetles I had:
- Euproctis melanosoma
- Melanodes anthracitaria - Black Geometrid (yellow form)
- Agrotis munda
- Praxis edwardsii
- Vanessa itea - Yellow Admiral
