From the trap last night, another Levantine Hawkmoth, a Lacewing Italochrysa italica and a Longhorn Beetle, yet to be identified.

I think this is Twin-spotted Wainscot Lenisa geminipuncta but, L. wiltsherie is here and is very similar.

Beautiful stuff, Andy. You moved to Cyprus? With all your books?!
Yes, we moved over, been here seven months now. Not moved all the books yetyet, just the basics so far. I have over a metric ton of them but we want to make sure my wifes career doesn't abruptly end before we sever out links with the UK completely.

Really beautiful! Colors on the lacewing are crazy. Hawkmoths...gotta see if we got them here. I notice I'm really a diptera/coleoptera-liker, more than lepidoptera. Something with the alien build, I guess.

A shot of one of my egg boxes showing Treble-bar Aplocera plagiata, Four-spotted Tyta luctuosa, Zethes insularis and an unknown Cicada sp.

Very pleased to find this Oleander Hawkmoth inside the trap this morning, received wisdom is that they rarely enter the trap and most often are found sitting somewhere close.

Also, what I think is a Geometrician Prodotis stolida if anyone is able to confirm that for me I'd be gratefull.

Hi Andy - yes, that's stolida., now placed in Grammodes., although the whole genus and it's relatives are in need of revision.
