Observation - P1060519 x 1. Description: Caught in MV light trap. The first photo shows the moth as we first saw it and recorded it. Much later, when we were releasing all the moths, the black one obligingly crawled up onto my hand and stayed put. We raced for the camera but the moth was happy

Caught in MV light trap. The first photo shows the moth as we first saw it and recorded it. Much later, when we were releasing all the moths, the black one obligingly crawled up onto my hand and stayed put. We raced for the camera but the moth was happy enough to pose for some while. The photos were taken quite close up with flash, which showed the underlying markings very clearly. I believe this is the carbonaria form.
