Purple Marbled

This is a turn up for the books.

(Edit : better pic added)

Mark Griffiths, Garsington, Oxford.


  1. thanks! I've emailed Martin Townsend to let him know.

  2. Not quite such a poor season now, is it Mark?! Your time has come! Very well done.

  3. Very unexpected and a lovely moth. I'm keeping it in case Martin T wants to see it and I'll then try and get a better pic. It's sharing the tube with a Lychnis which isn't ideal. I did put them in the fridge for a while but I don't know how cold tolerant the Purple Marbled is.
