Aberdare Ivy Blossom Update

Further to my post, of Sunday 7th October, I have now had the chance to look at the photo I took of the macro larva, found feeding on Ivy blossom. A small miracle has occurred and I have actually been able to use Porter to identify it as Dot Moth... unless someone else can come up with a better match, that is.

Dot Moth
It's such a common moth, but having seen many adults of this species over the years, it is nice to see the larva for a change.
