Kent Black Arches?

Hello! I am new to this page but I have been moth trapping for a while now! I caught this in my trap last week - would someone be so kind as to confirm its species? My grid ref is SP415138.  I live in Long Hanborough near to Witney.  Many thanks! 


  1. Hello May, yes indeed, that's Kent Black Arches. I don't know how it is faring in Oxfordshire but certainly in Bucks it is quite well established now at several sites in the Chilterns.

  2. Hello May, yes you are correct this is a Kent Black Arches, a moth I have yet to see in my garden!

  3. Thank you guys! I have been trapping in my garden for several years and have never been fortunate enough to catch one until now.
