The number of moths for the last two nights have continued to be low.  There were 16 moths of 11 species on the 9th and 9 moths of 7 species last night.  In fact, after some rough weather in the afternoon and evening, I was in two minds as to whether to put the trap out last night .  However, I'm glad I did as there was a new backyard species in the light trap this morning.  I'm putting it down as Rugged Rover (Platypolia anceps).  It appears be quite similar to Platypolia contadina but I think the fairly wide bipectinate antennae make it anceps.  Having said that I have asked for a second opinion.
