A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Still February, just, but this beast was sunning itself on a window frame yesterday afternoon!
I'm guessing Double-striped, but please put me straight. If so, shouldn't be flying yet?
Hi David,Yes, that's Double-striped Pug. Records from March onwards are commonplace nowadays, earlier not so often but I did have one in the garden on 8th February 2020. They over-winter in the pupal stage so any warm spell at this time of year is quite likely to tempt them into emergence.
Thanks, Dave - great to see one so fresh - pugs seem to get worn so quickly - and then I find them impossible!
