Questions, questions.

Lots of moths I cant identify or am uncertain of . Help gratefully received. Plus a Cloaked Carpet ( I hope)
 Above  ????
And below - is this Willow Beauty or could it be Feathered????
 Dingy Shell?
 Dingy Shell?
Cloaked Carpet


  1. I could be corrected, I would say Engrailed and Willow Beauty (Feathered beauty has different shaped antennae). Looks as if your Dingy Shell was much better behaved than mine. Cloaked carpet, fine specimen.

    1. That's where I was going with the first two, but wanted to be certain. Thanks .
      Dingy Shell is a First

  3. Andy's right on all 4. Feathered Beauty is ultra-implausible in Carms: you really only need to consider Willow, Mottled and Satin Beauties and (Small) Engrailed here in summer. Further east there are Pale and Great Oak Beauties, but I don't think we've got them in Carms.
