If I see an entry

which is unidentified and which I can identify then I identify it. Pretty sure that is what iSpot is for.

More evidence of unusual

More evidence of unusual emergence/flight time patterns for 2013. The "normal" larval period for Mullein is given as May - July. Reports of larvae here in Glos suggest an extension this year with small caterpillars being seen later than usual. (Comment added in the light of the original date given for the observation - ie September.)

Observation date?

Maybe Steve can confirm but perhaps the actual observation date was earlier in the year and his Android device is not reading the image date.
