ID Help Please

Tom Lister, Great Hampden, Bucks
Hi all,
Last night I caught two of this species which I have photographed below. Can anyone help to ID them please? I feel very stupid because it looks as though they must be some sort of Gothic, but I can't find a good match in my book.


  1. You will see lots of these and it is quite a variable moth too. Lunar Underwing. If you care careful and can open up the hindwings you will see why it is called that.

  2. Oh yes of course!!! I've had them lots in previous years but I had completely forgotten and spent 15 minutes trying to match it to a moth in the Gothic section of my book, without looking at other pages closely enough... Thanks!
