Nice end to the month

Some lovely moths turned up last night to mark the end of September: a pair of Frosted Orange, Brindled Green, Red-line Quaker and what I think is the form capucina of the Green-brindled Crescent, above with a Sallow.  Happy times.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Hi Martin, that is indeed Green-brindled Crescent. The capucina form can occasionally be much darker than that (almost melanic) but the streak of white by the dorsum always seems to be there.

  2. Very many thanks, Dave. They are lovely moths, aren't they. The flecks of green are fantastic. All v best M
