Moth for ID

#1

Post by Appledumpling » October 5th, 2019, 2:11 pm

Found hiding away in a piece of glass fibre car bodywork. I have looked for ID on line but it eludes me. The little white dots on the legs must be a give away.

I don't think the white spotted legs is too much help in getting an id,
the yellow underwing group seem to have white spotted legs too, but I don't think its one of those,
Moriati is your man for moths, so i'm sure he will know what it is :)

From looking at the pictures this apears to be The Herald Scoliopteryx libatrix from the family Erebidae.

Yes, thank you Moriati. Maybe it's a herald of autumn/winter.
