Spots

Is that not a faded sixth spot in the same place on each wing? As usual, colour-blindness prevents me seeing the colour of it, but there does seem to be a pale spot at the edge of each wing. Not Six-spot, then?

Hmm I think it possibly is.

Hmm I think it possibly is. I don't know all that much about lepidoptera, I'm just going by what someone ID'd it as who I think is a fairly reliable source! I think I've got a couple more photos of the same moth, I'll see if I can dig them out and see if they show any more spots!
