Hebrew Character

Only one moth caught last night ... a Hebrew Character, Orthosia gothica.
Some literature says that it is named because the black markings resemble the Hebrew "nun" character.
Nun is the 14th letter in the Hebrew alphabet but the markings more resemble the Hebrew Kaf or Khaf, the 11th letter. Whatever, it's the latest on the garden year list ...
