Barred Carpet - Via Gellia

A couple of interesting moth records from Simon Roddis. This is the Barred Carpet which has a status of Nationally Scarce A which means it is only known from 16-30 10km squares in Great Britain since 1 January 1980. The Via Gellia is the only site I am aware of where there is a significant population. I have yet to see a fresh specimen, the Barred Carpet seems to loose its scales very quickly.
