More moths

In the trapping session the other night there were a couple of moths that weren’t immediately identified, they turned out to be yet more new species’ for the parish

The first was this lovely Dot, this species has a more southerly distribution so a nice find for North Yorkshire

 The second was this micro moth Coleophora mayrella.


And the third this Gypsonoma oppressana. This was an excellent record as the species has only been recorded in Yorkshire a couple of dozen times before.
