The latter was approx 8mm long, which would be too small for the similar, larger, C alternana.
Three others were new for the year - Blood-vein, Brown China-mark and Dingy Shell
As usual, there are some that I'd be grateful for help with. I'm pretty sure these are Bactra sp. but could they both be B lancealana ?
and finally ... is this tatty beastie a Currant or Wormwood Pug ?
