Thistle Ermine and Blackneck

I trapped again last night and got a reasonable haul, with Garden Grass Veneer (Chrysoteuchia culmella), Heart and Dart and Dark Arches forming the majority of the catch. I was pleased to find a Blackneck.
Rather a handsome and subtle moth, I think.
I also found a large Ermine, as big as a macro, and sparsely spotted.

The wing pattern on the lower picture is identical to that in the book. The black spot on the neck looks like a wear mark.
