Moth for ID, London (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I just took these photos of a moth on the windowsill outside my house in an urban area about an hour ago. Have attempted to ID it but tbh I have no idea, looks like a shrunken version of lime hawkmoth to me, the closest resemblance I can find in my pocket Waring is Purple-shaded Gem!

I can only apologise for the quality of the photos, taken with a camera with only enough battery to take one photo at a time before dying on me.

Any help much appreciated.
