Couldn't we think of a nicer name?

One of my favourite moths arrived last night, though the name 'Blotched Emerald' sounds a bit insulting to me. I hoped to persuade it away from the black bulbholder which the camera doesn't like, but at the first nudge of an eggbox fragment, it skittered away. Plenty of other arrivals but also grandchildren here, so moths must wait.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon.
