2 moths for ID.

Hi I've got two moths I'm wanting IDs for please. I'm reasonably sure the first is a badly worn Common Marbled Carpet, so I'm hoping for verification.

The second is certainly a Nocutid, but which one? Again it is a little worn. I took this on the 31st Aug, then misplaced the images until now.
Common Marbled Carpet TBC

Noctuid sp.

Thanks

Square spot rustic...??

Hi Andy. I've had a really good look at my original photo, blown up on screen. The lower two marks looked like the usual kidney marks to me. Taking your suggestion as the prompt, I see that they were not. It looks like the Square Spot Rustic as you say. Obviously I mislead myself, easy to do. I have photographed a Square spot last year in Whitby, it's not as new to me as I thought. Thanks for that.

Square spot Rustic are pretty common in September and Small Square spot are all but finished by now...but they are tricky at the best of times...
