Trapping in Scotland for 3 weeks in June were hampered by cool nights and we found little in the way of day-flying micros - but on a fine day on Morrone (Braemar) Alison and I found 161 Scotch Burnet between 500m and 700m (lower than they are supposed to be) - thus "completing" the Zygaenidae.
3 Sessions at Stour Wood, Essex in early June and early July, 2 of them with Ben, produced some nice scarcities, including Triangle and Shaded Fan-foot, but we failed to find the Olive Crescent we were targeting - again probably because the nights were cool.

I have had several suggestions that this site would benefit from a search box. I agree - but this is not available as part of Weebly's free hosting service. When I put a donations box on the home page I did so with every intention of upgrading the site to include a search box. I am grateful to the few people who have made donations, but they have so far not come anywhere near the Weebly annual subscription fee. So - if you want a search box please make a donation using the PayPal box at the top of the Home page. When / if I have received sufficient donations to cover the subscription costs I will upgrade the site. Meanwhile the "search this site" extension of Google Chrome works very well.
By year end the off-season dissections had added 4 new species bringing the total presented to 1624.
3 species added this month. Total now 1624.
