Yellow Horned, Shoulder Stripe and Melinda viridicyanea

Picking up pace here a bit at the moment. However, nothing too unexpected. Nice to get my first Yellow Horned in the garden plus the first Shoulder Stripe of the year, one of my favorite moths. Also a Calliphorid that wasn't Calliphora vicina, namely Melinda viridicyanea.

  1. Garlic Mustard - that'd be a complete mega for up here! Orange-tip too.

  2. I'm hoping for Yellow-horned. It'll be interesting to see what first dates we get for the same moths given the distribution of our traps.
