Pale Mottled Willow?

This is a species I've had problems with in the past - it usually is partially hidden and I fail to get it out of the trap to photograph properly.

Has the black costa markings and a hite of white in the kidney spots.

  1. Hi Mark, as a relative beginner at this game my way of hopefully recognising them is the four black dots on the leading edge - which of course yours has.

  2. Indeed, that is Pale Mottled Willow.
