Description:

My moth problem is that I know so little about them, I don't really know where to start looking. If anyone can save me the laborious search, I'd appreciate help.
Don't be misled by the bit of plant hanging down over it. :))

Thanks for this

I'll check it out. I've got the Concise Guide to the Moths of Great Britain and Ireland (Townsend, Waring & Lewington) but sometimes the search is daunting. I'm getting lazy, maybe. :))

Getting lazy

Aren't we all John? You're certainly not alone.

Take care John.
