Would have been new for me full stop... your boys are tick magnets!

Rather more ordinary in my trap, including Heart and Dart reasserting its mastery with a field-crushing 11 individuals. A Garden Carpet and Turnip were interesting but joint honours went to three Common Footmen and a single Scarce Footman, both species being NFY. Total of 26 moths of 13 species.

Fresh ones can be quite distinct. The first is Rustic being brown & uniform and the second is Uncertain being yellower with a dark band, stronger markings & darker kidney marks.

Both pics from this June.

All the best

For me, this is a Heart and Club but I have been struggling being happy that I can definitely exclude Turnip from some of my moths. As a result, I recently retained five that I identified as Heart and Club for photography.

If correctly identified, the first three are males and the next two are females. In the next post, I will add pics in the same order of the same moths head on.

All the best

Thanks Paul. I was confused by the fact that the markings weren't solid but mine certainly fits with your photos. One continues to learn!
