Large Twin Spot & Muslin Footman

Postby MPStanyer on Fri Jul 23, 2021 8:24 am

Two new species for me on Wednesday night (21st July). Large Twin-spot Carpet & Muslin Footman (2).
The Large Twin-spot was noticeably larger and darker than (eg ) Common Carpet. I measured the length of the forewing at 16mm. Fairly confident in my id but would appreciate confirmation as it is my first.

Correct on both accounts.
Large Twin-spot Carpets seem to be on the increase.
