The moth trap has been a bit quiet this month – the so-called “May lull”, hopefully. A total of just 3 moths (and an unidentified micro). 2 Double-striped Pugs (Gymnoscelis rufifasciata) and a slightly worn Currant Pug (Eupithecia assimilata). 

I’m still very much learning my moths and they’re not the easiest of groups to get to grips with. The variation between the 2 Double-striped pugs below is a good example.
