Hebden Bridge Last Night


Hi All, Amongst the usual visitors were two moths that puzzled me a little.
The first Lesser Yellow Underwing? WL 20mm. Hindwing brown but with yellowish outer edging. has 2 distinct black marks near tip (The one thats intact at least) like Lunar Y U.
The second, Is this The Engrailed (2nd Gen?), I have never had one of these and know they can be very variable WL ~15mm. Hoping you can help. Win

Hi Bennyboymothman, too big for ingrailed clay (WL20mm). I think it might be dotted Clay though. Winston
