The mild weather continued in Morgantown, WV today with a high temperature reaching the mid-50s. Although there is a full moon tonight (which discourages moths from flying), at least a few early season moths showed up at the dusk to dawn lights at Dorsey's Knob Park.
The lights attracted one each of four different species. They included a Spring Cankerworm, a Small Phigalia, a Dowdy Pinion and my first Green Cloverworm of the year.
In addition to the moths, I also spotted a Canadian Nightcrawler, Lumbricus terrestris, sticking his head out of ground tonight. Or at least I'm guessing it was his head. The funny thing about Canadian Nightcrawlers is that not only are they not native to West Virginia, but they are also not native to Canada. They are actually an introduced European species!
