Hi Moongirl,Did you get any

Hi Moongirl01,

Did you get any other images? It would be easier to eliminate Muslin Moth as a candidate if a view of the dark and pale stripes that run the length of Buff Ermines back were available. From this view this could easily be Buff Ermine or Muslin Moth using the uklpeps images for reference.

A mature Buff Ermine (45mm) can be up to 1cm longer than a mature Muslin Moth.

Cathal.
