Kefalonia Update Pt 1
Beaches, Caves, Nymphs and Dragons Well, Cryptoworld is back from a well earned break in…
A 3mm long Moth, which was first found in 2004, has been recognised as a new species!
The micro-moth, which lives in Hembury Woods in Devon is believed to be unique to the UK and not found anywhere else in the world.
The tiny moth, with a wingspan of just 6mm, was first spotted in 2004 by amateur naturalist Bob Heckford.
In January this year (2010), the moth was officially recognised in the journal Zookeys as a new species, and named Ectoedemia heckfordi after its discoverer.
