markings seems same, though colour v different
No interactions present.
I'm assuming these are two different individuals? The one on the right looks like the Uncertain, but the one on the left looks more like its close relative the Rustic. BUT ... these two are always hard to tell apart, especially when a bit worn, as both these are. And also variations in colour and lighting between digital cameras can give very misleading results for moths. So I can't be 100% sure, but I'd say that at least one of these is the Uncertain, while the other I wouldn't like to say either way.

my friend has scrutinized the photos and thinks that it is very likely that this is the same moth caught in the trap on two consecutive nights. i am unconvinced because the moth was released some distance away from the trap site and though taken on the same camera the colours seem so different, though i agree that they look like the same moth, ie wing rips etc...?
Oh yes, I hadn't spotted that the wing tears match so well, it does look like the same moth doesn't it? In which case this is an excellent example of how photographs can be misleading when trying to work out subtle distinctions in colour and tone of moth wings! I guess the differing backgrounds may have made a difference to how the colours came out in the camera?
