A re-trap from the previous night?

Have to assume that this is a re-trap from the previous night, albeit a better couple of images. FWIW...five noctuid species last night- Tree Lichen Beauty, Pale-mottled Willow, Dunbar, a Yellow-Underwing sp.,Festoon and D.spectaralis and once more, double digit Pyrrhalids!! normally I would only see the odd one?

Cheers

Hi Ken
Just wondering what D.spectaralis might be?

I suspect Cydalima (formerly Diaphania) perspectalis- plenty around now!

You might be right. It was just the mention of it with the comment "Five noctuid species last night" wwhen I could only see four.
Thankfully none near me as almost all the box has gone.
