Pug Sp. 26/06

This looks a little different to me both in size and shape. At first glance looks like a Common Pug, but rests with tail heavily curved up. At 24mm wingspan, it's a bit of a brute in Pug terms. What do you think?
I found this page on British Lepidoptera, the detail on the tornus area of the hind wing is diagnostic.

...........NFG, 26th June 2014. Macro #350 for the garden.


  1. Thanks guys! What I expected. I also get Yarrow Pug, so I knew it wasn't that. Another new for garden macro, though I have probably disregarded a few of them as Commons before. I found this earlier- it was really helpful-
