Mystery Moth

Among a batch of photos I received from Jenny Colley today was this noctuid which I'm not sure about. The Brick is the closest I can get, but it doesn't seem quite right for that. I'm probably missing the obvious but any help appreciated.


  1. I think it's a Brick too Barry. A little pale or faded though.

  2. I'd also go for Brick. Probably worth checking to see if it's got hairy eyes though (to rule out the Hadeninae), just in case. Cuccullinae should have visible eye lashes.

  3. Thanks both - only the photo to go on, but I'll look out for hairy eyes in future :)
