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.
