Brass band

Hello from Thrupp where the yellow sweater has been snatched by Burnished Brasses, interestingly. Maybe the ten of them in the MV trap was a result of putting it out very early as I gather from WT&L that they enjoy flying at dusk. I hope I am right in saying that the pair above show the two forms aurea (foreground) and juncta.  A more appropriate candidate for the yellow sweater, the Brimstone moth, took second place. Meanwhile I have a marathon ID-ing job in hand after holidays and if anyone knows anything about the moths of Corfu and can help me here, I'd be most grateful.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon
