Micro for ID

Postby bobhelencoan on Mon Apr 26, 2021 3:47 pm

Whilst gardening this little moth hit my glasses and settled on the inside surface. Realising what it was I just managed to get to one of our small moth pots and secure it before it flew away.
Closest we gat get is pammene argyrana which we have had before in 2016 when Steve Hind dissected it for us.
Any ideas gratefully received. Bob & Helen

Thanks Steve, We had retained the moth in case it needed dissection so will now let it go. Bob & Helen
