... this moth was in the loo's at the coffee stop and I can't get an ID.
Is it a Crambid?

Take a look at the Muslin Footman.

Off topic - you're quite right that Gradbach is in Staffordshire, but wind the clock back a 100 hundred years or so, and the wider Gradbach community spanned both sides of the River Dane. Staffordshire had the mill and the doctor's house; Cheshire had the Chapel and all three pubs (including the Eagle and Child). I'd like to think we had the better part of the deal!

A very smart little moth, wherever it was :-)

And I thought all the Footman were just in straight beige jobs! :roll:
