Fair point, Angus! But I thought the article on the separation of red twin-spot carpet and dark-barred tsc was very helpful.
You've made very rapid progress in Irish recording... you must have had some long sessions on the computer! I'm lucky, I just have to send in my records on a spreadsheet and someone else does all the work.

Yes, including tonight!

480 species maps uploaded. Also regional flight charts for a quater of them. Some of those flight charts are very telling.........well for us here.

These maps are very provisional, but at least a good idea of range can be assessed for vast majority.

I came across this mothing blog whilst looking for something on Google. Some good pix (though a bit too much moaning about boring moths!).

Hi, David,
There seems to be an uncanny similarity between your sites and Richard's. Are you Warwks mothers all using the same templates?
(Not that there's anything wrong with that )

Came across this on how to separate early tooth-striped and mottled grey - would have saved me making a wrong ID on the March thread!

I rather enjoyed this 'informal' blog. There's an interesting account of building a DIY moth-trap in June this year.

If some of those turned up in trap I don't know whether I'd laugh or run away! Check out #5 on http://www.thaibugs.com/Pik%20of%20moths/showthem.htm for example.

Agreed! Looks like the sort of thing a child would design in art class.
I wonder why the clear-wings on the same page are called hand-maidens.

Woo!

Thanks Ken... Didn't realise you'd linked to my blog until I checked the stats this morning! I'm glad you like it - Though suggestions on things to add/change are always welcome

Great link on the Thai bugs - thanks. Was able to successfully ID some butterflies on it.

Something like that sorely lacking for East and Central Africa.

Cheers
