2020 September 6 morning
There are still Pine Whites to be seen in Metchosin and in the Kemp Lake area. Yesterday Jochen Möhr counted at least six from his Metchosin property (that is, six seen simultaneously – though there could have been many more) and a further six elsewhere in Metchosin, while Rosemary Jorna photographed one in the Kemp Lake area:

Jochen also saw a Woodland Skipper, while Rosemary photographed the micro moth below:

Jochen’s moths from Metchosin this morning:
1 Alucita montana
1 Drepanulatrix sp.
2 Emmelina monodactyla
1 Neoalcis californiaria
1 Gazoryctra mathewi
Gazoryctra mathewi is a hepialid – we don’t get many of those!
