Light: 50W UV CFL 71460
Direction: Sheet facing South-East
Runtime: 8pm – 10:30pm (2.5 hours).
Having the sheet mounted to a shed wall means easy access to a feast for flightless predators. This Isopedella leai (Cinnamon Huntsman) made its way onto the sheet and partook in a Crane Fly meal. A young Christinus marmoratus (Southern Marbled Gecko) took advantage of any Insects dropping to the ground, but the adults which frequently visit were absent.
A couple of Conocephalus sp. (Lesser Meadow Katydids) turned up and climbed to the top of the sheet. A new species on the property. More commonly I find Elephantodeta sp.
A new Tineidae sp. (Fungus/Clothes Moths). Within this Family I frequently sight Monopis meliorella (Blotched Monopis Moth), and Monopis crocicapitella (Bird Nest Moth).
