Green Brindled Crescent

This one had me stumped for a bit, but I think it is a slightly battered example of the capucina form of Green Brindled Crescent....

Other news of note includes a Vestal, Sallow and a Vapourer here last night.  There's a pic of the Vestal here.   If anyone wants to add any posts to the new East Glam wildlife blog that George and I have set up please feel free to do so!

Barry, This is the one I have been recording as Eudonia pallida by the way.  It seems the right shape, and I am taking the dearth of wing markings as diagnostic of E pallida in this case...?  It is not a particularly worn or faded specimen as best as I can tell.


  1. Looks like E. pallida to me Adam

  2. I agree with Dave - good record. it's seems to have been a good year for this species and that must be one of our latest records?

  3. I think it is currently the latest record Barry, pipping one of George's by a few days. Given the run of mild weather it would be interesting to see how many 'latest' records have been broken this year...

  4. And it's not over yet, as I had pallida last night (8th Oct)
