Description:

The markings seem corect for these moths, but their overall shape is not as narrow as those shown in the guide books. One moth does indeed have a wing that is a different colour. Perhaps it has been caught in something ?

Wing overlap

These moths are not as much at rest as some of the other illustrations so they have not allowed their wings to overlap as much as usual. On the left one the hindwing is showing and the left forewing may be a little rubbed.
