Today was the Herts moth group meeting, a very enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
It was great to catch up with people I hadn't seen since August in some instances and I also got back some specimens from Colin Plant.
Most of them were Agonopterix's, being all heracliana!
A really well marked Pug turned out to be a Slender Pug from a trip going back to the 12th July 2013 where we visited Roughdown Common.
More interesting was a new species of Eriocrania for me and dare say David, Roger and Steve as well.
A single example of Eriocrania sparrmannella was trapped on our first trip of the year in 2014 to Hay Wood, it seems to be a scarce moth with very few records although some records in the past may have been discounted by not being properly identified.
The pictures of both species are below.
