A Jewel at Maenol?

Or is it?  I'm not absolutely sure because I've not seen one before, but it looks very much like a Gem.

If that's what it is, perhaps some kind person would confirm it for me because I'd like to alert Atropos Flight Arrivals.

The MV + small actinic attracted a good number of moths last night, including this one, which was in the MV trap.  I may add a few more to the blog in due course.


  1. What a little cracker! Congratulations, Chris. Couldn't be anything else, could it?

  2. Thanks Steve, I don't see what else it could be and there are some very similar images of it online.

  3. Well done Chris. It`s quite a few years since I`ve caught one.
