Three come at once!

I was filled with anticipation on the hot tropical night on the 19th of July, with an overnight temperature of 23c!. I knew because of the weather it was going to be a special night for attracting moths here at Caldene fields. And yes it was!!! However, it was the Ladybirds that stole the show with 3 new species recorded and all in the moth trap!. This brings my Ladybird species list for our recording area to a respectable 11 species.

Eyed Ladybird

Cream streaked ladybird

18 Spot Ladybird
