Small Scallop?

Dave and Nigel were very helpful last year when I had trouble distinguishing between a Small Bloodvein and a Small Scallop, which arrived together in the trap. I've used their advice with this delicate creature and think that it may be a very pallid Small Bloodvein, but I am so often wrong that I'd be very grateful for confirmation or correction.  Other arrivals include regular Small Dotted Buffs, Yellow Shell and the Gothic below. All best, Martin Wainwright, Thrupp.


  1. Yes Martin, that's a Small Scallop.

  2. Thanks v much Peter Hope the wasp sting has gone!

  3. It's rather swollen and itching like crazy, but thanks for enquiring.
