Rooftop Moths

A nice calm mild night, although the temperature dropped quite a bit by early morning so not as many moths as I had expected in the trap, only 9 common quaker, 2 early grey, a hebrew character. a small quaker and the first v-pug of the year. In fact this is the first spring brood v-pug I’ve recorded from my roof terrace trap.

V-pug
V-pug occurs in two broods Apr-mid June and mid July-August. The larvae foodplants are varied but the source of the v-pugs recorded from my roof terrace are probaly from the Traveller’s Joy (Clematis vitalba) on the undercliff below.
