Small Ranunculus

I found this moth by my patio doors early yesterday evening. I am fairly sure it is a Small Ranunculus (fw measured 15mm).

I believe they were once scarce but are now rapidly increasing in number?

  1. Hello Steve, yes that is Small Ranunculus and, as you say, it seems to be increasing in numbers. Anecdotally it is also less likely to enter a light trap than be found close by. Certainly the one which visited my garden two years ago (and it is still the only one) was found on a wooden fence three or four metres away from the light.
