Square-spotted Clay? and an Ear
This was taken at Hollington Wood in North Bucks on 25th July at a 40W actinic Skinner type trap. I think it may be a Square-spotted Clay but could be wrong. It is a chunky beast though which is not a feature I recall for Triple-spotted Clays and Double Square Spots. The Amphipoea specimen was in my Robinson trap in my garden at Newport Pagnell this morning. I understand it is a genitalia job to identify which of the four it might be. As I see them so rarely, I am happy to leave it at that.
