Square-spotted Clay or something else?

A couple of these were found at College Lake on Saturday morning when the night's  catches from 8 traps left there on Friday night were inspected as part of a Moth event with BBOWT, Butterfly Conservation and Bucks Invertebrate Group.  We at first thought a worn Purple Clay but then had second thoughts.  I did record a Square-spotted Clay last year at Hollington Wood and dithered then too before being assured by this Blog.

  1. Looks good for Square-spotted Clay to me Gordon. Nice moth :)

  2. Thanks for posting Gordon, I am reasonably sure I had this too.
