Yes, as you say the only 'Y moth' with an unbroken Y, at least in the UK anyway.

Thankyou Douglas. I dont

Thankyou Douglas. I dont fully know why I doubted this one, maybe because others Ive seen are greyer in overall colouration, but even the illustrations in WTL give brown examples so it shouldnt have been a problem.

Thanks,

Cathal.

Yes, wide variaty in colour.

Yes, wide variaty in colour. Some can be very brown.

I've heard it can be to do with where the moth started life (ie more northern or southern Europe) whether this is true I do not know. Same apparently with the Vestal, with pink ones coming from further South.

Best wishes,

Douglas
