Garden Inhabitants

Hi all moth bloggers!

A bit late in the day/season, but I'm finally uploading a post!  My trapping has unfortunately been a bit non-existent this year, but here are a few interesting beasties found in the garden recently.  I think the above looks like a Brindled Plume? Also within a few inches of this plume moth, a Buff Ermine (I think) caterpillar was eating lavender.  Does this sound like an out of the ordinary foodplant choice?

  1. Those two Amblyptilia are rather troublesome. It looks a bit brown for punctidactyla to me, so it could be acanthadactyla. Can you assess the scale tufts on the hind wing?
