Ochreous Pug?

Well, hasn't it been busy lately? Winter seemed to end at the beginning of the week, followed by Summer from Tuesday onwards. I've got a lot to catch up on, but will post some lists and a few photos later. Below is what I believe to be an Ochreous Pug. The size, angle of the wings and position of the central spot seem to all be right for the species. The photo isn't good and the moth is somewhat worn...........if confirmed it would be a 1st for the garden.


  1. Yes it looks like it to me Matt. I have had a couple, but fresher than that one...

  2. Thanks Stewart, I've seen O P in Chicksands Wood, Beds. about 2 years ago. This looks good but I'll send to the recorder too.
