Mystery Moth

Help needed with identifying this little chap, caught two nights ago. I'm really stumped. Everything similar seems to appear at least 6 months away!! Thanks in advance.  Jane H


  1. Jane - the consensus is that it`s a pale mottled willow, as suggested previously. I sought and received the opinion of both Sam and George.

  2. Many thanks everyone. A new one for me in a catch of just 10 moths.

  3. Moth are related to butterflies, belonging to Lepidoptera. Most Lepidoptera are moths. Most spices of moth are nocturnal, but there are also crepuscular and diurnal species.
