Also found when emptying the trap were the Green Lacewing Chrysoperla carnea and a small woodlouse that was paler than most of the ones I see in my garden. Sadly it didn't turn out to be anything new - it was the same speceis as they nearly always are, Common Rough Woodlouse.

There were also 6 Harlequin Ladybirds. I haven't been able to work out what sort of Aphid this is. Please let me know if you know how to identify these.

A quarter of the moth species on 29th September were new for the year - Brindled Green, Beaded Chestnut and new for the house, Large Ranunculus. Actually I think I may have overlooked one or two Beaded Chestnuts among the recent Lunar Underwings - I'd slightly misremembered one feature that separates those types that look broadly similar and didn't check the underwing.
