Lunar Hornet Moth: 10 July 2020 - Leybourne Lakes Country Park

The arrival of the new Lunar Hornet Moth lure prompted an immediate test...and leaving the pheromone trap out for just a couple of hours (later afternoon) proved sufficient to attract one of these elusive beasts...

The following day I put the lure out at Holborough Marshes in the morning, and attracted seven!!

This is a very accurate pheromone lure which will rewrite the distribution map of this fantastic wasp-mimic.
