SP9326: 21/08/15 - New: Cydia fagiglandana

Tmin: 14.0°C; W: SSW 0-6 mph; P: 0 mm;

Another warm and muggy night.

Cydia fagiglandana was a new garden moth which can be confused with Cydia splendana. The latter tend to present with little variation in our garden, however, playing safe, I checked with DVM (VC30 micro recorder) who agreed with my speculation. It's nationally common, but only 26 records (2014) in the VC30 database. The larval food-plants include beech, oak and chestnut.

Stats !
