Corn Moth - Nemapogon granella - recent records

New records of Corn Moth Nemapogon granella have been taken recently by Mike Ottley and Jackie Welton in Norfolk. First on the 21st Sept 2008 when they found 14 flying around a workroom. Since then they have had further hatchings.

On examining their stored specimens of Bracket Fungi they found the culprit. A specimen of Piptoporus betulinus (Razor-strop Fungus) which is an extremely common fungus on Silver Birch trees, collected in Jan at Selbrigg Pond.
Projecting from the underside of the bracket were 42 empty pupal cases.
