Thorny questions

May I please check my Thorns, all arrivals here in the last week, which I have as (1) Early (2)Canary-shouldered and (3 & 4) September. And is the moth below a (rather dishevelled) Lesser Cream Wave?  Many thanks in anticipation.  Apologies for the state of my fingernails. Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Hi Martin, I agree with you on Early and Canary-shouldered. I'll pass on the September, it could be an August. The wave is a Clouded Sliver.


  2. Hi Nigel and many thanks, much appreciated. I should have got the Clouded Silver. I chose September on the basis of the timings in WT & L and also the angle of the wings at rest, but I guess that's a guess. Much aoppreciate your help. There are more to come! All best M
