Description:

This is another view of the moth, in shadow unfortunately, but showing spurs on the hind legs which might identify it as Emmelina monodactyla rather than Amblyptilia acanthadactyla.

Spurs

The point about the spurs is that on each pair, one is longer than the other. Your photo shows that the moth has spurs but it is difficult to judge their lengths and thus be certain on the genus.

Thanks for that, I'll try and get a closer look if I can still find the moth.
