Red Red-line Quaker

I caught this moth last night, the only thing i can see it being is a Red-line Quaker, but its reddish? There is a mention of this in the Field Guide F. rufa but says its most frequent north and west. Is this what it is or am i overlooking something else? Sorry pics aren't great, light was disappearing fast.

  1. Hi Darren, that is definitely Red-line Quaker. I get varying red forms (f. rufa) here too so it is not at all unusual in this area.

  2. Darren the comment about f. rufa doesn't mean to say that it can't occur in the south, of course.
