Large Brindled Clothes Moth and Club-tailed Dragonfly

Large Brindled Clothes Moth, Triaxomera parasitella
Rewell Wood on Tuesday gave me two new moths: Large Brindled Clothes Moth and Yellow Oak Button. Other moths: Hook-streak Grass-veneer, Common Yellow Conch, Red Piercer, White-barred Gold (dead), many Common Marbles and a Common Carpet. Butterflies: Meadow Brown and Holly Blue. Another highlight was my first Club-tailed Dragonfly, a lovely yellow creature. Other interesting microfauna: a tiny weevil, a male deer tick and a female Azure Damselfly. I also found some Nymphalid larvae on nettle - different instars. I will return today (Saturday) to try for better identification photos to see if my suspicions are correct.
