Not surprisingly moths have been thin on the ground though while photographing a Rosy Rustic back at home Bob managed to have a Firehorn Leaf Mine (Phyllonorycter leucographella) land on his camera which was not in my trap. Although pretty common in gardens around here these days since its first discovery in
in 1989 it is surprising that something as small (8mm wing span) and delicate could have
survived the recent weather onslaught we experienced over the last few days.
