Hi all

This one to me looks slightly like lots of things and not exactly like any of them. Eucosma? Epinotia?

South coast, single specimen came to light last night. Please opine.

Someone showed me that book recently - I had no idea it existed. There is a companion volume for moths associated with conifers.

A very worthwhile purchase if you can get it.

Jon Clifton - one of the principal authors - runs ALS. A birder of old that nailed the Least Tern when it visited Colne Point from Rye Harbour and someone who spent a few years birding on Shetland thereafter having moved there. A really good chap.

All the best

Gotta get me a copy of that book, if only for the title. It would sit nicely alongside Enjoying Moths!

Thanks for help on the ID, sounds reasonable to me.

Roy Leverton is also a really good chap. I visited his house once as I was travelling around Scotland with a friend of his and he showed us a Swordgrass. :t:

Apologies
