Last Night in Hebden Bridge

Hi All, A bumper crop of 31 moths amongst the midge storm last night. Some interesting micros new which were new to me (These has taken all day to identify and with some considerable help) I think they were almost as spectacular as the Macros, judge for yourself. I have been tring to get a pic of a Light Emerald for years now. They never seem to settle. I was lucky last night I think. Can anyone confirm the Ingrailed Clay? Winston

Small Square spot v's Ingrailed Clay

Had a look at W&T. 1)more parallel wing shape 2) Whiter distinct kidney mark 3) Black edge to outer cross line 4) no extension of wedge shape 5) General pinkish brown colour all seem to suggest SmSqSp. Thankyou gentlemen.
