4 August 2018: 'Broom Path' near Canterbury with Marc Botham
Concluded the weekend's moffin activities (4 Aug) with a couple of hours spent near Canterbury along a footpath that has yielded some interesting bits in the past. The Acrobasis had some quite prominent raised scales towards the base of the wings, so I'm opting for A. tumidana on this occasion (what do the good people of the interwebworld think?). The Cydia amplana was the second in two nights. Epinotia trigonella (may be) and Cochylimorpha straminea (I think) both also posed well enough to have their mugshots taken. A Tawny Cockroach found on the vehicle was the third new Orthoptera over the weekend.
