This blog has been set up so local people can find out what is going on in the world of Moths, Butterflys and dragonflies in Calderdale.If you have any ID problems put up your photo's and someone will try and help you to id it.
Those backward facing palps and outward(ish) facing antennae certainly suggest Fan-foot.Why would it be a male?
Ahh, just read about the antennal bulge of the male.I'll post a pic of one I caught last year for comparison - not sure what sex it was - looks like a male.
Its those funny yellow 'fans 'protuding from the head ,that I have never seen before.??
They look like the tibia with the feet either missing or bent underneath.Have a look under the microscope.
