I heard today of "lot's" being seen in south-west Scotland. Several
recorded in various moth traps and two brought in by one cat! Another
was recorded locally to me in somebodies flat in Cambridge, (England).
None in my trap - yet!

My first posting to the group!
A friend was brought one for identification on 22/9, which
had been found in a private garage in Stamford, Lincs.
Our local entomolgist recorder took photograhs and logged
it for the Natural History Society's records.
