A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hi Steve, it's a Ringed China-mark (Parapoynx stratiotata).Nigel
Thanks Nigel, that's a first for me. Hopefully I'll remember next time.
That's a very smart male and you could be forgiven for not recognising it from the image in the micro field-guide. I had 14 of them in the garden here last night, mostly males but a few of the rather more boring brown females too.
Thanks Dave, yes I did have some problems finding the little blighter as it's so beautifully marked and the illustration is a little understated.
