A couple of green moths in the trap over the past couple of days.
This is a Green Carpet – a species that normally emerges in May …..
Lovely feathery antennae – the caterpillars feed on bedstraws and there are two generations per year in the south: May – July and August to September
This is the V Pug – another species with two generations a year: April – June and July to August. The caterpillars feed on a variety of plants including hawthorn, dog rose and bramble.
Both species are common
