Description:

I've been going round in circles with this one. About 12mm long and attracted to MV light trap. Cloaked Minor shouldn't be flying in May but I can't find an alternative. I'm probably missing something obvious. Can someone put an end to my indecision?

Hi Phil, what about Marbled Minor or Tawny Marbled Minor, all very similar and far too complicated for me to ID. Chris.

Thanks for your input Chris.

Thanks for your input Chris. You prompted me to take another look at the Minors including your suggestions and I came up with Rufous Minor. Let's see what others see!!
