Many thanks -

It doesn't appear to be in my Waring and Townsend.

Micros

Hi Amadan,

That's because this is a micro moth. W&T only covers macros.

The companion guide covering micros has now been published (Sterling and Parsons).

Best wishes,

Douglas

OK - thanks

I didn't realise it was a micro - it's quite a big one!
I shall have to put the new one on my Chrsitmas list...
