Longhorns and moth surprises in North Yorkshire

Some different species over the last week for Doug Fairweather. Trapping in a garden in Amotherby turned up Oak Hook-tip and Yellow-barred Brindle with an Old Lady for good measure.

Yellow-barred Brindle

Oak Hook-tip

Arhopalus ferus (Burnt-pine Longhorn beetle) was a rather unexpected discovery. Doug found an individual at York Road Industrial estate. Despite being dead and damaged, and no doubt assisted in its arrival by lorry, it was still in a good enough state to identify.

(Note this beetle was seen at Tophill Low NR on Saturday, but can't be counted for the list!)
