21st June....Cream of the Crop

The gusty wind blew in some interesting moths to the garden last night, among them this CREAM-BORDERED GREEN PEA 2418

Don't know what this is...probably a Common Rustic agg. Size is ok.

Any suggestions (mothwise) welcome ?????????????????????

This one is a DOUBLE SQUARE-SPOT 2128, but a Triple-spotted Clay is easily missed as the markings are just about identical,,,see Matts blog, he's got pics of both. CELYPHA LACUNANA 1076 the wind kept the micro count well down last night.

Almost unbelievable....My second GRASS RIVULET 1807,

THE CLAY 2193,

BURNISHED BRASS 2434, quite a worn bedraggled example, but a year tick.

  1. Hi Trent, the mystery macro looks like Dingy Shears to me.



  2. I would say the same, It's a bit faded though..

  3. I think your mystery moth is a Rustic Shoulder-knot, the shoulder mark seems to be just visible. I'm catching them in a similar colour condition at the moment.
