Ni Moth (Trichoplusia ni)
The Ni Moth occurs in small numbers in the UK in most years, of up to 50 per year. Its breeding range encompasses southern Europe and North Africa, though occasional larvae have been found in Britain.
It is a bit of a Silver Y look alike but with the background a lighter grey-brown. The central silver marks are separate, and with some imagination the inner mark forms an "n".
Two rather good examples of tree Lichen Beauties, in the past I've caught a few but they have normally been very worn. Until recently this species was considered a scarce immigrant, and specimens here may well be migrants, but it is also a recent colonist. There are a number of records in London each year, indicating that there is a colony in the area.
Bordered Straw (Heliothis peltigera)
Anther migrant, that sometimes has bumper years, the last major influx was in 2002, but with two so far this year it is still possible that there might be a good late showing this year.
Six-striped Rustic (Xestia sexstrigata)
Not a migrant, but last night was only the third that I have trapped in the garden. All have been in August and along with the Rosy Rustic I caught the night before, it is a herald of the Autumn.
