Very docile and tatty moth found on the street in New Malden, Surrey. It's very battered and I've not been able to match it to anything in the book.
No interactions present.
The moth is in very poor condition and the markings on the wings are almost obliterated but I think that this could be a Brindled Beauty (Lycia hirtaria) but I am far from sure.
Do you have a size of the moth please?
A decent size, similar to a silver y perhaps but broader. On further reference to the book, as suggested, Brindled Beauty or perhaps Peppered Moth are the most likely possibilities.
Well Brindled Beauty is fair bit bigger than a Silver Y.
It's not a Peppered Moth.
It could well be a deformed Brindled Beauty as suggested by Ron.
