Dark side

Very nice to welcome a melanic carbonaria Peppered moth for the first time in two years, even if it does have a look of Darth Vader. Other arrivals this morning included that weird-looking creature the Pale Prominent, Dusky Sallow and what I think is a pinkie fingernail-sized Grass Rivulet, below, but would be grateful as ever for advice.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon.

  1. Hello Martin, correct family but wrong moth, I'm afraid! That'll be a rather washed-out Small Rivulet (the larger and far less common Rivulet having been ruled out by your hint at its diminutive size).
