Moths of September 2013


The Tobacco Looper Moth, Chrysodeixis argentifera.

Though not many, we did have a few mild nights in September; early and late, with several cold weeks in between. So, I’ve split the information into two sections- early September and late September. On a couple of particularly mild nights the light fairly buzzed with activity, though click beetles and bugs usually outnumbered the moths. About  28 species of moth were recoded, mostly old faces, but a couple of new ones too. Most ID’s are thanks to Steve Williams & Peter Marriott. To see more of Steve’s work go to
