Day-flying Moths

Scarce Violet Cosmet - Panacalia schwarzella Violet Cosmet - Panacalia leuwenhoekella
After a tip-off from Graeme Lyons I headed up on the downs to have a look for two moths, both of which are under 1cm and both would be new for me! It took me a little while to find them but soon I had counted 11 Panacalia schwarzella and 3 Panacalia leuwenhoekella. The P. schwarzella is a RDB2 species and the P. leuwenhoekella is Nb! Very nice too! Cheers Graeme and Pen...Great find
