Nothing very exiting from the trap in last few days-lots of LYUs. However, this morning I had a new micro for the garden which I'm fairly sure is Monopis crocicapitella. While looking at it in the pot it landed with its hindwing sticking out which was pale grey. It also had a heavily speckled appearance-see photo. We've reached the end of another month. At the end of August I'd recorded 148 macro species which is better than the 135 at this stage last year, but not as good as my best year of  2011 when the number ws 164. However, this year has been my best ever for micros with 103 species at the end of last month, which 6 better than the total for the whole of my previous best micro year.
