Non-Stop Birding overflow
Hi Pete, 1,2,5,7 all look like Turnips to me. 3 presumably a Eudonia sp, wouldn't want to comment further without knowing what occurs there. 4 I think is Grass Webworm (herpetogramma licarsisalis), a species I've just seen for the first time on Lanzarote. 6 the most crippling of all but have no idea. Have trawled the Leps site but can't find it. Someone must know what it is. Not a Yank is it.........?
Hi Peter, Bomber and Sam (assuming people are still checking this),I managed to find a checklist of Azorean inverts which helped rule a few things out (I can email it to anyone who wants it), as a result, I'd come to the following conclusions, although having seen Bomber's comment I'm wondering about the Dark Sword-grass IDs now :-/ 1. Turnip Moth2. Turnip Moth & Dark Sword-grass3. possibly Eudonia melanographa 4. probably Herpetogramma licarsisalis5. Turnip Moth6. possibly Ascotis fortunata azorica7. Dark Sword-grassBleedin' moffs.
Hi Darryl, no I think you're correct, I was just careless!Cheers
