No idea!

This was on the sheet by the trap this morning, I guess its a Pug sp. but how on earth do you take it beyond that?!

There is a book on pugs by Riley and Prior,it tells you all about the complexity of id'ing this very difficult group of moths.There are a few very distinctive Pugs but this could be 1 of many very similar species.You have to check there bits to be sure.

Brindled pug for me that one

But its a struggle with many off them Nick.

(Hey just left sean in the pub, he says he's up for looking at moths and wants to pop over next time we are up at yours!)

Pugs are macros Nick - looks like you're stuck with them :-)

Nick Carter said...

No problem there Winston, I'll probably see him tonight when I take over from him in the shop.
