Pug Moths are notoriously difficult to identify and this one is no exception.
The more likely Pugs to find at this time of the year in Berkshire are:
Double-striped, Brindled and Oak-tree.I have ruled out Double-striped in this case as there do not appear to be any black-edged cross lines. Therefore I think it is between Brindled and Oak-tree. Brindled normally has a distinct black central spot in the forewing, but this appears to be absent. The Oak-tree has Orange-brown scales along the leading and trailing edges of forewing and this does seem likely in this photograph. Therefore I am plumping for Oak-tree Pug. Has anyone else got any ideas?
