A small moth 7-8mm long creamy brown colour body lighter colour,head white came to porch light.
No interactions present.
I agree with David's caveat about dissection in order to be completely sure, but on the basis of the wing shape this moth could well be hastiana; cristiana has a concave shape to the leading edge of the wing, but this can be difficult to assess in just 1 picture.
Only one photo available,it flew off before I could get anymore.Thanks for both comments and ids.
Invest in a few pots/jars; catch the moth and put it in the fridge for a while and then you can photograph at leisure.
thanks for advice I have pots how long could I leave them in fridge ,did not ever hear of it before.
I don't think there is a problem of keeping a moth caught, say in the evening, overnight so that it can be photographed in the morning. Species seen at this time of the year are better adapted to chilling than those seen in the summer. Certainly some geometers later in the year don't seem robust enough to keep in a fridge and are probably better just left in a trap overnight or photographed in situ.
