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.

esperia sulphurella or not?

Postby IAC » Sun 06 Jun 2010 10:54

Hi all,
This micro was photographed "very badly" on the coast north of St Abbs a few days ago. The only match I can find is "esperia sulphurella". However I see that it is maybe not so common in these parts. Does anyone have an alternative answer. I would be interested to know.

Thanks,


Iain.

Yes, I'd say that's what it is. I've caught a few in West Lothian.
