ID please?

I found a couple of things that looked close but really none the wiser. Can anyone ID this one?

Mark Griffiths, Garsington, Oxford


  1. Hello Mark, that's the next summer moth after Flounced Rustic which always causes ID problems. You'll need to get used to the highly variable Square-spot Rustic pretty quickly before their numbers reach plague proportions in your trap!!

  2. Dave, thanks - I did have that as a possible - some guides show the spot as very square and state it's diagnostic, other books show the spot anything but square!
