Moths home and away
Life has been exceptionally busy since I last posted but I have a couple of poor phone images of what I think are wave moths but can't be more precise than that and would appreciate help with the identifications.
This moth was on my garden gate 1st July. Identified as Engrailed by Chris, Thanks
This moth was on my dining room carpet, 4th July, and despite appearances, was alive! Possibly common white wave or riband wave. the Jury is still out.
I think that this is a pale tussock moth caterpillar which I saw on the lower reaches of the Watkin path up Snowdon on 25th July having just walked through an area of mixed deciduous woodland. Identity corrected to Vapourer, thanks Vaughn, and details sent to the Gwynedd county recorder.
As always, all help is gratefully received.
