ID help please

Out looking in the garden for the Endothenia nigricostana this afternoon and found this little beast. On the same shrubs, and looks approx the same size but all I managed was a one-off 'grab-shot'. It disappeared into the shrubs when I tried to catch it but maybe it will re-appear later/tomorrow. Although distinctly marked I have failed miserably to find a match so would be grateful for some assistance.

I also rescued a very nice Lychnis from the bathroom wall last night - another new moth for the year.


  1. Perhaps another, slightly odd, nigricostana? Your garden seems to be a hot spot for them!

  2. That's what I thought when I first saw it ..... but I haven't been able to find a single image of nigricostana to match it. Haven't seen it since either ......
