Vine's Rustic and Pug?

Robinson trap run on 19th Sept in my back garden here at Tilehurst, Berks.
Catch = 122, Species = 22.
A record number of Lunar Underwing for me (65).
The pug above I think is a Double-Striped but would like confirmation please and also the type of Rustic. Due to the flight season, I'm guessing Vine's Rustic.

  1. Hi Tony,
    yes to a Double-striped Pug. The other looks good for a Vine's despite the lighting. If you open up the forewings, the hind ones should be pure white in the Vine's. A good diagnostic to use. The forewings are a slate grey.
