Confirmation please + Meal Moth

I think I have my first Deep- Brown Dart - can someone confirm.

The other picture is what I assume to be a Meal Moth. It turned up in my greenhouse. Again another first.

  1. Hi Mark, I think we'd prefer to use the correct name, which is Deep-brown Dart, but yes that's what it is! The other one is indeed Pyralis farinalis (Meal Moth) which turns up quite regularly around here.

  2. thanks Dave. Yes, I spotted my error and nipped in with a correction to Deep rather than Dark.
