Mesapamea secalis/didyma

Thanks David

I have looked at the three moths again and I think you are right. It is one that has been in my unidentified file since I phtographed it. I marked it at the time as one that was like one of the Rustics but looked different from the other photos I had taken.
Your help is appreciated.

Pete

Rustics

At least once a year I hang on to an exciting and obviously rare moth that turns out to be one of this group.
