Sharp-angled Peacock?

I was wondering if this could be a Sharp-angled Peacock. It occurred in my trap at Beenham Berks last night. The features seem right. I've included a picture of a Peacock from an earlier year for comparison. Any thoughts?



  1. It does look like it, Derek. I've seen quite a few in Devon over the past week and, as you say, your example seems to tick all the boxes. The dotted rather than solid black line around the edge of the hind-wing is particularly clear. I imagine that would be quite a good record for Berkshire.

  2. Yes top one Sharp-angled. It is spreading and there have been several recent records in our area
