Jim,
Sorry, I did not keep this one. I am afraid we will have to leave this one until next year. I agree with you that the markings on the wings are strigillae (just lines, not the edge of some...

I am not in the UK these days, but back in the 70s the magpie was very common along the hedgerows in Brecknock (Powys). My father reports that now it is rare.

Most pheromones are very specific, to one species or a few closely related species - after all there is no point of a female attracting the wrong male!

Jim,

I have been checking this out against the British species, and have come to the conclusion that it is probably not on the British list.

Your comment got me thinking more about the host, and it is Euonymus, probably europaeus but it could be an exotic as it is a planted area. That would make it plumbella, irrorella or...
