2 Cabbage Whites, 19 Ringlets, 1 Western Spring Azure.
Ringlet or Large Heath Coenonympha tullia (Lep.: Nymphalidae – Satyrinae)
Jeremy Tatum writes: Here is a small geometrid moth reared from a caterpillar found last year. The moth emerged today and was released at University of Victoria. Although there’s an outside chance that it might be Cabera exanthemata, I’m reasonably sure that it is in fact Cabera erythemaria.
