Still twenty moth species flying in warm December weather


This is a German video on the mottled umber moth.

The Dutch Vlinderstichting entomologists report today that about twenty moth species are still flying around in this December month.

They are not only species adapted to winter, like winter moth and mottled umber.

This December so far is warmer than usually. That means that species who prefer warmer weather are also, unexpectedly, still around.

Eg, moth researchers in Limburg province on 7 December had put syrup on a tree. It attracted 308 chestnut moths.
