Description:

Would this be Heath Rivulet, there is lots of Eyebright about at the moment but the nearest out crops of limestone are about 10 miles away. I thought at first it looked more like a Twin-spot carpet but I could not make out any sign of spots.

confusing

I've spent quite a while looking at this one - doesn't look quite right for Heath Rivulet (and as far as I can estimate it is too big?), but I was struggling to find something that was a better fit. Eventually I've gone for Striped Twin-spot Carpet, which I'm reasonably confident of, but as a southerner I'm not very familar with these moorland moths!
