Pug and Plume for ID

Very grateful if anyone can help with these two. I thought the pug would be fairly straightforward with the white marks but it eludes me. Sorry it escaped before I could put it near the scale.


  1. It looks like a Common Pug Tom. Regarding the plume, if you look at the tibial spurs on the hind-leg of your moth, you will see they are of uneven length. This means it is Emmelina monodactyla.

  2. Thanks - useful tip that is not in the "field guide"
