A poor night on 5th June produced one nice new moth for the year, Brindled Tortrix Ptycholoma lecheana - only my second here and a species I don't see often anywhere.

Next day another wander round the Cathedral Meadows provided a good haul of invertebrates including no less than four lifers. My visits to the meadows this year have been very rewarding with lots of species I had not previously identified, but most of these come from groups that I haven't studied much. I've seen some good moths here, but between late April when I started and late November when I'm writing this only two moths have been entirely new for me. One of these was on 6th June, netted along the track - a Scale-tooth Lance-wing Phaulernis dentella.

This fly turned out to be a Marsh Snipefly Rhagio tringarius, a species that I've probably seen before but hadn't previously identified.

This rather attractive Cucumber Spider appears to be Twin Cucumber Spider Araniella opisthographa if I'm not mistaken. I find it pretty hard to see the relevant details that enable identification of these spiders, even under a microscope, but this one seemed to fit oposthographa best I think.
