There were 9 macro moths of 9 species in my light trap last night. One Noctuid I haven't identified yet. Of the 8 macros that I have identified, 5 were new for the year and 2 were new for my backyard. The new backyard species were Birch Angle Moth (Macaria notata) and Arched Hooktip Moth (Drepana arcuata). This is my first Hooktip moth and a nice fresh looking specimen!! The Birch Angle Moth is a worn specimen but still a nice looking moth. The other new species for the year were Mountain Hooded Owlet Moth (Cucullia montanae), Stormy Arches (Polia nimbosa) and Virgin Tiger (Grammia Virgo). I didn't see any Tiger moths last year either in my backyard or elsewhere so glad to see this one.
