Last Night a New Carpet
Hi all, Last night there were 5 species in the Hebden trap. One however was new to me. Is this a Dark-barred Twin-spot Carpet Xanthorhoe ferrugata? It seems right but only has a very slight 'notch' in the inner whitish line as described on UK moths and W & T. (Possible notch circled). Any opinions?
