More from Alun Valley

Anybody have any thoughts on this one? Rhopobota stagnana has been suggested but it is fairly worn so hard to be sure. Length 7mm.


  1. That looks an awful lot like an even more worn Tort I caught at Dingestow a few days ago ( I still can't work out what mine is, so I'm afraid it's going to need to be gen det. Yours has similar mid-wing markings to mine (though your photo makes them much clearer), same pale palps and same dots along the termen.

  2. Thanks Sam. I have kept it for future reference but it would be very interesting to hear what yours is.
