Colour variation

This is much paler than any I've caught on Tyneside! I've just checked the Somerset Moths web site and they show a pale specimen as well. Maybe they tend to be paler in the South West.

Waring and Townsend imply a darker in the South East and paler in the North West type of gradation.
