Wainscot?

Postby macchi on Thu Sep 09, 2021 9:50 am

I'm pretty sure this is a wainscot of some kind (probably common/smoky?) but could someone help with identification please? The two black/white spots are confusing me.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Alison,

A light reddish brown Wainscot with black arrowhead marks on trailing edge, makes it a Male Bulrush Wainscot.
Nice moth.

Regards
Greg
