July or Lead or neither?

If you have seen a Butterfly or Moth you can't put a name to then post a photo of it here and we'll try and identify it for you.

Hi

These aren't easy and we don't know. I sent it onto Roy Leverton only to find that Barry had already cross posted it onto ScottishMoths and not posted the result here. I've apologised to Roy.

Hi Mark,
Nevermind...I will find a more defined specimen one day. I do not think they are that uncommon. I saw another further up the coast a few days after that photo...sadly...I had no idea then how significant another photo of the species would be...so...I pretty much ignored it...GRRRRRRR!!! As I said....their will be another some day....I hope!

Thankyou very much for looking into it.

Iain.
