A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
A photo from Nov 2019 is puzzling me. This seems to have some characteristics of both Red-green and Autumn Green Carpet. Which have I got, please? Found near Chesham, Bucks.
Hello David,That's the very common Red-green Carpet. Your specimen seems fairly typical but sometimes they are completely lacking in "red" (more especially the females, it seems to me). Autumn Green Carpet is a rarity in Bucks (none since 2014, 16 records in total and almost all without any supporting evidence) so we'd need to see the specimen if it was claimed.
Thanks, Dave - it was a forlorn hope!!David
