Hi Steve, As I mentioned

Hi Steve,

As I mentioned above the profile fitted the species well but the colour seemed wrong. I am currently seeing an awful lot of Shaded Broad-bar on the road at night and they tend to rest with wings held up and closed a lot. They have a fairly distinctive shape but when viewed at night with a light they are usually a rich light brown/ginger colour on the underside of the wings as you may well have noticed yourself.

Cathal.
