New species (for me) are continuing to present themselves this month. Here are a few of them.
(Click images to enlarge)
Two new species of Idaea and I was lucky enough to have help with the identifications.
The top one is the striking Idaea pseliota.
This one is Idaea philocosma
Geometridae : Sterrhinae
This one is Termessa gratiosa.
Arctiidae : Lithosiinae
Geometridae : Ennominae
This, I think is Persectania ewingii.
If you enlarge this photo, the scales resemble feathers on this particular moth. Probably a really fresh model! :-)
Noctuidae : Hadeninae.
We are in for some cooler weather and rain, hopefully, so mothing may be put on the back burner for a few days.
