200th Moth

Poplar Hawk Moth
Dewick's Plusia

Got my 200th moth species (been recording moths for 13 months) for Beddington last night- a Poplar Hawk Moth.
Also the last two nights I have caught Dewick's Plusia again. This gives more support for the theory that we could have the only breeding resident population in the UK of Dewick's Plusia at Beddington. We did a write up about it in Atropos:
Dewick’s Plusia, Macdunnoughia confusa Breeding in Britain? Atropos, Vol 12:45 by Peter Alfrey and Derek Coleman
