Bleached Pug at Campbell’s Cottage

Following on from Darren’s epic moth vigil in which 180 different species of moth were recorded, we were lucky to have another enthusiast staying at the cottage. His trap glowed bright through the night and an extra 21 species were found, including the Bleached Pug. The moth recorder for Meirionnydd usually requires dissection to confirm a record for this rare species but as our guest was a professor of zoology, he was prepared to take his word for it.
