Here is a few shots of the  45.030 BF1513 White Plume Moth Pterophorus pentadactyla

The last record I have was   a visit in Glaphorne Cow Pastures in 2015 on a Black Hairstreak and Wood white Visit with Andy / Linford

The Specimen was found Nectaring on  Ragwort adjacent to Bindweed Convolvulus its larval host so might be a good time for finding specimens for rearing
