Cheers A, hope I’m forgiven for not spotting it in the book, as there does appear to be a discrepancy between the illustrations and the image. I suppose I’ll have to lean towards the more variable extreme in the future.👍

They do seem quite variable as are many moths. Certainly at the darker end of the spectrum.

Ken, because you can't ID a moth or a bird, this does not always make it 'odd', I'd really like to know how many threads you've started with that word in the title ;)

Skinner shows a lot more variation in moths - found it quite handy before it got wet and went mouldy.

I use the term “odd” Andy when,
the subject is at variance to the regular or norm (usually birds) or when I’ve painstakingly thumbed through Lewingtons a dozen times...and have been unable to assign it......OK sunshine. 😉
