From the five traps set on Saturday 13th August 2011 another first for Dumfriesshire (VC72) came in the form of 0121 Pseudopostega crepusculella, a tiny member of the Opostegidae, with a wingspan between 7-10 mm. There are three previous records in Kirkcudbrightshire from Parton Waid, Auchencairn and Carsfad near Dalry.
