What's this?

I think the odd one like this my have evaded my detection before.........this is very worn, but was on the small side compared to most Willow Beauty's I've seen and definitely brown rather than grey.

Willow Beauty ab?


  1. I would think the two black marks beside each other on the right wing and the hint of these being part of two lines across the whole forewing indicate it ia a Willow. Shape and antennae look right as well; I only get grey and occasional black individual myself though never a brown one

  2. Knackered Wilow Beauty - certain.

  3. Thanks- I didn't know WB was available in brown! Must be pretty unusual?
