Metzneria lappella

See post below, Metzneria metzneriella should read Metzneria lappella. This is the first VC68 record. Or at least the first documented record, as I caught  and submitted 11 last year that could have been either. I submitted them all as lapella but their id wasn't proven so they were moved into the commoner metzneriella slot.

 Now, in 2011, the very first one of the year I catch is, indeed, lapella! This means I have added the species to the VC 68 list twice. Now who else can claim that!


  1. You are certainly having great success with your FIRSTS, Stewart. Congratulations on another.

  2. Well done on another first for VC68 Stewart. Must be a great feeling!
