19 Jun 22 - #30DaysWild Day 19 - Aquatic Moths

If asked, then I think most people wouldn't think that there are aquatic Moth caterpillars in the UK. But that isn't the case. The caterpillars of Small China-mark are semi-aquatic and feed on Duckweed. I expect to see the Moths around my pond at this time of year.
Small China-mark: Female. The males are largely white & there was a male flying around the pond, but it didn't settle
