NOCTUIDS: 2336 - END

2336 Double Lobed in the garden greenhouse, June 21st 06. It was found in a bag of ornamental grass clippings from the garden pond which the larva was probably feeding on.
 
2337 Marbled Minor male to light at Cromwell Bottom NR, June 30th 2018. Gen. detted by myself.

2341 Cloaked Minor nectaring on Ragwort at All Saints' graveyard on Aug. 5th 2017.

2342 Rosy Minor to MV light at the cabin, Cromwell Bottom, Aug. 18th 2018.


2343 Common Rustic (male), netted at dusk at Bankhouse wood, July 31st 2010. Gen. det. (myself).


2343 Common Rustic agg  nectaring on the garden Heleniums prior to flight, Aug.1st 2017. Bit of a fluke this shot as it took flight a fraction of a second after I pressed the button.

2353 Flounced Rustic to MV light at the cabin, Cromwell Bottom, Aug. 18th 2018.


2369 Bulrush Wainscot, larval exit/entry hole on a Bulrush stem, Cromwell Bottom compound, Mar.22nd 2018.



2369 Bulrush Wainscot, larval feeding signs, details as above. Peeling back the outer layers revealed extensive feeding signs as well as more holes. 

2381 Uncertain agg., May 26th 2018. Reared from the larva pictured below. I've retained the moth and will have to send it off to be identified with certainty.


2381 Uncertain agg., larva found at Skircoat Green allotments in April 2018. It was found on Groundsel but accepted Dandelion in captivity.
2397 Small Yellow Underwing, one of two at Copley meadow flying in the warm sunshine, June 3rd 2018. Easily overlooked these were spotted by Andy Cockroft who had the useful experience of seeing these before.

2340 Middle-barred Minor to light at Cromwell Bottom, June 2nd 2018. This male's "bits" were checked to aid identification.
 
2367 Haworth's Minor to MV light at the cabin, Cromwell Bottom, Aug. 3rd 2018. Unusual to get one of these at one of the most low lying sites in Calderdale as they're more often seen in upland areas.

2400 Scarce Bordered Straw, the garden, Sept.1st 06. Photographed at dusk on Buddleia. This is my only record of this a rare immigrant to Calderdale. It makes me wonder which country it hatched out in.


2403 Bordered Straw, the garden, Aug.25th 06. Nectaring on Buddleia at dusk. This is my only record and another rare immigrant to Calderdale.




2422 Green Silver-lines larva at Robber Dodge wood, Sept. 12th 2017. Found on Beech, this one appeared almost fully grown - I would have taken it for rearing through had I know what it was at the time.



2422 Green Silver-lines larva (details as above). A close-up of the prolegs.


2423 Oak Nycteoline, Bankhouse wood, Aug.2nd 2010. Netted at dusk this is my only record.





2434 Burnished Brass, Bankhouse wood, July 13th 2010. Netted at dusk. The complete cross-band makes this of the form - aurea.


2434 Burnished Brass, Copley meadow, July 5th 2017. A daytime observation.
This of the form - juncta, with the broken cross-band.


2441 Silver Y resting on the garden fence, Oct. 2nd 2006. A daytime observation.

2441 Silver Y nectaring on campanulas at dusk in the garden on June 19th 06. This was my first attempt at night time moth photography - I was quite excited with the result and what future possibilities it might open up.

2442 Beautiful Golden Y, North Dean meadow, June 20th 2005. A daytime observation.
 
2466 Blackneck to light at Cromwell Bottom NR, June 30th 2018.
 

2469 Heralds, Bare Head tunnel, Shibden valley, Jan.22nd 2013. A hibernating pair on the ceiling of the tunnel. There were around a dozen Heralds present but the Tissue moth seen previously was not relocated sadly. Thanks to Andy Cockroft for helping with the search and finding the moths originally.



2474 Straw Dot, Tag meadow, June 30th 2014. A field observation on a gloriously hot and calm summer's day.


2474 Straw Dot, North Dean meadow, July 12th 05. A field observation. Much more commonly recorded in recent years and often disturbed from unimproved grassland.


2476 Beautiful Snout, North Dean wood, July 5th 05. A field observation on Holly and my only record of this rare Yorkshire species.

2477 Snout, North Dean meadow, June 14th 06. A daytime observation.


2484 Pinion-streaked Snout, Bankhouse wood, July 21st 2010. Netted at dusk this is my only record. Very similar to some pyralid moths and surely overlooked by those not used to recording micros.


2492 Fan-foot, Bankhouse wood, July 7th 2010. Netted by dusk. One of two individuals netted during the month at this site.


2492 Small Fan-foot, North Dean wood, July 5th 05. A daytime observation.
