White Ermine (Spilosoma Lubricipeda)

Monday, June 03, 2013 Adam Tilt 1 Comments

A couple of hours running the moth trap last Saturday night delivered another new moth for the garden in the shape of this rather nice White Ermine.

P1110135 - White Ermine

Unlike my previous catches this individual was found a short distance away from the trap instead of actually in it. I'm beginning to think that my original plan to place baffles around the bulb is now a necessity if I'm to increase my nightly catches beyond single digits. A trip to B&Q may soon be on the cards .......
