Is this Holly Tortrix?

Postby MPStanyer on Wed Aug 11, 2021 2:24 pm

Again, from 21st July 2021. Size & shape look right for Holly Tortrix & I believe the moth is very variable, mine are usually grey but this one looks rather orange-brown. Is the shape sufficiently diagnostic for Holly Tortix? I just want to check that I am identifying these correctly.

Many thanks,

Martyn.

Looks OK for Holly Tortrix (Rhopobota naevana) with the extended lobe at the wing tip
