77 moths of 19 species

There were approximately 77 macro moths of 19 species in the light trap this morning.  44 of these were either Glassy Cutworms (Apamea devastator) or Thoughtful Apameas (Apamea cogitata).  There was one new species for the backyard, a geometrid, which I believe is a Spruce Cone Looper Moth (Eupithecia mutata).  I’m not 100% certain about the ID but will call it that for now.

The following is a selection of photographs taken this morning and include one of the more colourful noctuids, a Rosy Dart Moth (Xestia oblata).
