1331 Water Veneer to an actinic trap at the Warden's Cottage, Hardcastle Craggs, July 21st 2017. The larvae feed on submerged pondweeds to a depth of up to two meters and the adult females are aquatic, coming to the surface to mate with the winged males.

1332 Scoparia subfusca, one of three to light at Cromwell Bottom, June 17th 2018. After much head scratching I'm quite confident it's of this species.

1333.Scoparia pyralella to light at Cromwell Bottom, June 16th 2018.

1334 Scoparia ambigualis, to MV light, Brookfoot Loop, July 21st 2012. This is the only confident identification I've made for this tricky species.

1338 Dipleurina lacustrata, North Dean wood, July 10th 06. A field observation.

1340 Eudonia truncicolella, Bankhouse wood, July 22nd 2010. Netted at dusk, this is my only record. Quite a large Eudonia species with a wingspan of 22mm.

1344 Eudonia mercurella, North Dean wood, July 10th 06. A field observation.
1354 Small China-mark (male), one of several of both sexes to MV light at the cabin, Cromwell Bottom, Aug. 3rd 2018. It would be interesting to find out if they came from the near by wheel wash ponds. There are small patches of duckweed growing so it definitely merits further investigation.
1356 Garden Pebble, Skircoat Green allotments, June 20th 2018. Captured by day.

1361 Mint Moth, resting on the garden Auquilegia, Skircoat Green, June 2nd 2018.

1376 Small Magpie, Bankhouse wood, July 21st 2010. Netted by dusk among a large patch of Common Nettles.
1380 Anania perlucidalis to light at Cromwell Bottom NR, June 30th 2018. Having run the trap through the night this little beauty was found in the early morning light - a first for Calderdale. It resembled a tiny Mother of Pearl.

1388 Udea lutealis, Milner Royd allotments, Aug.1st 05. A field observation. A widespread and common species in grasslands and meadows.

1390 Udea prunalis, nectaring on the garden Verbena bonariensis, July 31st 2017. 

1390 Udea prunalis, June 30th 2012. Reared from a larva spun up in a raspberry leaf found earlier in the summer at Skircoat Green allotments.

1395 Rusty-dot Pearl, May 14th 2017. It was found dead inside a locally bought cabbage imported from Spain. Not the most exciting find inside an imported cabbage but that's another story.........

1405 Mother of Pearl larva, Bankhouse wood, June 14th 2010. Many Stinging Nettle leaves had folded edges spun together by these larvae.
