Pyrausta

Pyrausta

Observation - Pyrausta. Description: About 10mm wingspan. Unfortunately I released it before realising I should have taken a photo of the top of the hind wings and the underside of fore and hind wings. Quite a few scales missing so I'm unsure whether it's P. aurata or P. purpuralis.
