Acleris Rhombana?

I got five of which i think are the above species in woodland last night - is the dark one the same as the orange one? Also got the three common Sallow species together, shown here for comparison. Dave Maunder

Pink-barred sallow, Barred sallow, and Sallow moth, 28-9-2014


  1. I think they are both rhombana Dave. The wing gets a bit pointy at the apex in rhombana (stop me if I get too technical) and they both show that.

    1. Thanks for that, Pete - i get your point.
