another shot of that wainscot

I had another look and found that the upperside of the underwings are also grey. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a proper shot and while trying to put it into a larger container I lost it. But you can just about see it here

  1. Hi Mark,

    Just seen the blogs about your wainscot. I would say it is definitely a Common wainscot and the dark coloration you describe is something I found in an individual two years ago in Benson in my old garden. I had a female with a black body, dark hindwings and underside to both fore and hind wings. It was so unusual I kept it and took lots of images which I will post one of now in anew post. BW, Marc
