forest, steppe, anthropic areas – 11.may.2015

Yesterday, 11.may.2015, my wife took me, Alexandru and Roxana with the car and left us in the forest and from there to return at home on foot … in total cca 12 km of walking… see track from GoogleEarth.

track from 11.may.2015

All nice, in the forest, not very strong wind, relatively warm and looked to be more warm… even hot. And after around 20 minutes when the first opportunity to take some photo arrived mountedย the tripod, set everything, click and … no memory card !!!!! ๐Ÿ™ Made a day of gym with almost 10 kilograms of useless photo equipment… not my plans ๐Ÿ™ .


Because found some nice subjects and without the possibility of doing photo there decided to take them at home and to take later photos… here are some of the photos taken.

Some Lepidoptera, not only adults ๐Ÿ™‚ . Maybe someone can help to properly ID the tortricid species and those larvae? The Coenonympha larva is likely Coenonympha pamphilus, the only species that I have seen around for now, so maybe is possible to have a conformation/or not of that.

Phlogophora meticulosa Macrothylacia rubi, eggs Olethreutes sp. Eupsilia transversa Coenonympha sp.

And some Coleoptera, this time all member of Buprestidae family. Not yet properly identified the Trachys and Dicerca specimens, will come back on them or maybe somebody better than me can offer a faster name ๐Ÿ™‚ . Trachys was collected on Fragaria si probably it is Trachys fragariae.

Dicerca berolinensis Trachys sp. Perotis lugubris Capnodis tenebrionis

Thanks to:ย Nikola Rahmeย – Hungary for the name of Dicerca species, Carol Bere – Romania for the name of the Noctuidae larva …


That is all ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!
