Merthyr mawr moth light 19/7/16.

      Small purple barred

         Pseudopostega crepusculella

        Scorched carpet

     Chinese character

       Lesser stag beetle

     Pyrausta ostrinalis

     Epagoge grotiana

    Double kidney

      Shore wainscot

      Four spotted footman

     Agonopterix liturosa

      131 species in my traps, with more in George's, which were up on the limestone crag. A warm
      night, still 20 degrees at 3AM when we were leaving. My actinic was full of hundreds of the
      ground beetle Harpalus rufipes, which reduced the catch in that trap greatly.
