Stainland, 25 July 2015. Two moths.

I didn't have time to post these two days ago,when I found them.

I'm not sure I got the IDs correct. I certainly hope I got the brown moth right as it's rare. Chance would be a fine thing. It was the only one I found which looked like my specimen. It even has the thickening part way up it's antennae.



Jubilee Fan-foot - 
Zanclognatha lunalis TBC.

Small Fan-Footed Wave - Idaea biselata.

Also had 4 Blasotbasis adustella.
3 Marbled Beauties.

Think its just FAn - foot , Jubille is a very rare moth in the UK...Swallow tailed Moths a re so striking.............

I knew the Jubilee was very rare. It was just those "circles" near the bottom and outside edge of each wing that made me think I'd found something exciting. I didn't really think I could have, but one can dream.
