Brown Midget Apple and a Marmalade Hoverfly

Miridae species nymph

On Wednesday I visited Houghton Forest and found a path around the forest that I had not used before. The nettle beds were very productive and I found plenty of new species of microfauna. New micromoths were the Brown Midget Apple and an Epiblema species. I also found my second Common Yellow Conch, a clutch of Hairy Shieldbug eggs and an early instar of the Pied Shieldbug. Plus the second specimen of a tiny brown moth which has yet to be identified. It may be Eulamprotes unicolorella or E. immaculatella, rare and tiny moths, or Monochroa tenebrella, a commoner moth. The other  specimen was on the east side of Rewell Wood, so it is widespread in this area.
