Annual Moth Night Highlights for 2016:

Our event was held on July 28, 2016. As usual there were many micros plus about a dozen male gypsy moths and a few other mid-size moths. The total count was 65 (lower than usual) with 5 new species for High Park.

One new species, Variable Narrow-wing Magusa divaricata is a more southerly species that sometimes strays further north in mid to late summer.
