Pug in November?! (1 Viewer)

Of all the things I was expecting at the trap tonight a Pug was not high on the list! White-spotted? Golden-rod? Common? Many precedents?

You could add Currant/Wormwood to the list! - the rather rounded wing shape. But, yes, very late for any.

Cheers. It's still in the fridge, so I'll have a go at getting some pics in natural light when I'm at home tomorrow.

Currant looks a good shout ... also the only pug (other than double striped of course) listed in Somerset moths Flying tonight (as an example location) for this week.

In better light this morning, I still see a White-spotted Pug here. Apart from the rather prominent white spots on the wings, the books and websites I'm consulting are all mentioning the white spot on the thorax and those either side of the abdomen as good features, so unless the various resources I'm looking at are over stating these features this seems a fairly straightforward identification. Other than the time of year that is!
