Wood carpet ?

I had this moth last night in my garden trap at Beenham, Berks. Is this a Wood Carpet? It was larger than a Common carpet. Not one that I've had before.

Thanks Derek


  1. From the picture I'd go for Common Carpet. A Better view of the hindwings would be useful. I'd suggest that any one thinking they have a Wood Carpet for the first time keeps the specimen and has it set.

  2. Hi Martin, Thanks for that. It looked a bit different from the other Commons in the trap so I thought that it was worth checking.
