My report of botanical activity in vice-county 104 during 2022 is available here.

My total for adult moth species here in West Suisnish stands at 241 as of the end of 2022. New in 2022 were:

  • Brindled Ochre (Dasypolia templi)
  • Brown China-mark (Elophila nymphaeata)
  • Buck’s-horn Groundling (Scrobipalpa samadensis)
  • Festooned Roller (Ancylis geminana)
  • Pale Pinion (Lithophane social)
  • Pearl Grass-veneer (Catoptria pinella)
  • Puss Moth (Cerura vinula)
  • Red Twin-spot Carpet (Xanthorhoe spadicearia)
  • Rush Veneer (Nomophila noctuella)
  • Twin-spotted Quaker (Anorthoa munda)

During the year I found one micro-moth (on Skye – see here) that was new to the vice-county: Monochroa tenebrella sometimes called Common Plain Neb.

I am running a Biodiversity Stall at the forthcoming Raasay Together festival on 25th March. Perhaps more on this later.
