Do you have or know of a butterfly/moth gallery similar to your dragonfly one?
Presumably you use UKMoths?
My Flickr photos...
Yes, I use that, but I wondered if there was any other comprehensive website. The colouringand markings of Ematurga atomaria in UK Moths are different from the one I observed.
Yes, I am always a bit dubious about agreeing with or giving IDs for species seen around the Mediterranean, as I simply do not have a clue what other options there might be. I don't know of a good site for mediterranean moths.
I do think Common Heath looks likely, but...
Having looked at the UK Moths entry for Lymantria dispar - http://ukmoths.org.uk/show.php?id=6312 - it looks very like the moth I photoed above. (The photo I looked at previously looked different, so presumable there is considerable variation). It also looks fairly similar (markings are the same, colouring in the book is a bit paler) to an entry in a small handbook "Flore et Faune des Pyrénées Méditerranéennes L'Albera".
I confess to knowing little about moths, and would value your further thoughts.
Your moth, above, is definitely not Gypsy Moth and almost certainly Common Heath. The only other possibility is that there is a closely related Ematurga found in the Med which looks like this...
Many thanks. I completely accept your ID. Please can you tell me what ID features make it specific?
Common Heath varies a lot in colour, but the basic pattern remains, with the two cross lines converging near the inner edge of the wing. If you compare your moth to the pictures on the carousel below, you will see the similarity of pattern between all the pictures.
When I added the second id for this I must admit I hadn't spotted that it wasn't a britsh example. However Ophrys is spot on!
