Insects

The moth trap yielded just two moths the night before last, but one was a species I haven’t had before: Yellow Horned Moth.

The other was a Red Sword-grass and I also caught a gnat that is Sylvicola probably S. cinctus:

and a crane-fly, Tipula rufina – my second sighting of this species in a few days.

My crane-fly records are spread through most of the year:

The vast majority are from Raasay but also include some from Skye and the Small Isles. (The T. pagana is awaiting final confirmation.) (Later: Confirmed.)
