Hi David,

The pug looks like Slender Pug, assuming it was small, and the Knot Grass is a Sycamore.

1 record from 1899 ‘larvae plentiful’ .
12 larve were found in the Halifax area 1983 (WBa) and an adult in the Halifax area 16th Sep.1985 (BG).
No other records untill one adult caught at light at Hedge Top Lane 8th August 2002 (AC).

Scarce moths around here....been away in France for 2 weeks got a lot to catch up on...great record.......
