Inverts

The moth trap a few days ago attracted 28 moths including this micro that I have not had before:

Agonopterix ocellana

Agonopterix ocellana

which has been given the name Red-letter Flat-body. Names for micro-moths do not seem to have caught on – I think I can see why….

This spider is, I think, Tegenaria domestica , the Common House Spider – though with no records in VC104 on the NBN Atlas. Later: Hayley tells me that specimens are needed to confirm the species of Tegenaria so this one will have to remain as Tegenaria sp.

Spider 180407

Common House Spider

Thanks to Seth for both these identifications.

I have also been finding River Limpet (Ancylus fluviatilis) and Water Cricket (Velia caprai) when out and about having had these brought to my attention by Seth.
