A problem - please help!
Bipectinate antenna, so male insect. Brown(ish) hindwing, paler than the forewing, but certainly not white. Wing length about 15mm. Two of these were trapped at Cwmllwyd on 18 July, the second one was very battered, so not photographed. I hesitate to suggest that it looks surprisingly like A.clavis: Heart and Club. Can this be so? It's a long way to the nearest sand dunes and there's a mountain in the way! Do they migrate? Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.
