Not quite double digits

My garden moth trap only attracted 7 moths last night, but there were 5 species, including my first micro of the year - an Acleris ferrugana/notana. The others were Common Quaker (2), Hebrew Character (2), March Moth (1) and this rather worn looking specimen below that looks like a Dark Chestnut to me - but I am happy to be corrected.

  1. It does look like Dark Chestnut to me too, Steve. They're getting rather battered now, though, and it'll be far easier to tell them apart when fresh ones emerge in the autumn.
