So worth looking it up. It has fairly long antennae as well.
hi Angus

There was one moth I found in August 2003 that was ID'd by either Ian Kimber or someone on BF as an Carcina quercana and I have attached it. Do you think the original ID was right?

I wasn't into mothing at all then it's just that it was found in our Kitchen in Leamington Spa.
