Uncertain Moth

Many thanks Nightfly for such a speedy response. This was my first posting. I'm most impressed.

Hoplodrina

Views differ on whether these can be done from external features. I'm of the view they can (sometimes) but lots of people more competent than me would disagree.

The reasonably strong cross band on this specimen would mean I would call this an Uncertain.
