Emperor male

A couple more of my Emperor males emerged today and one of them was dark coloured compared to the others. It says in the field guide variation is rare so i thought id show it on here and see what the experts think.
Last nights catch was a little better, with NFY Garden Carpet and Aphomia sociella joining Early Grey x3, Streamer, Shoulder Stripe and Hebrew Character.

Darren Seaman, Milton Keynes.


  1. That is quite a dark individual, Darren, and presumably fits the 'smoky' variant mentioned in the field guide. Not one that I've ever seen.
