A Blog for moth recorders in Bucks, Berks and Oxon
Hi Mark, yes that's a Powdered Quaker. It is generally larger than most Common Quakers, has that very pale sandy-yellow or sometimes very faintly pink ground colour (these are by far the most common forms - maybe the only ones? - found locally) and that very speckled appearance. The illustrations in the WT&L field guide don't really do our form justice. Have a look at http://ukmoths.org.uk/show.php?bf=2186 and the second image at http://www.hantsmoths.org.uk/species/2186.php
