Vine's Rustic

My moth identification skills always get rusty over the winter, so I was a bit unsure of myself when four virtually identical moths turned up in last night's otherwise uninspiring trap. After consulting my reference works and searching internet images I decided they were all Vine's Rustic. What do you think?



  1. Looks good for Vine's Rustic judging from published images, Adam, but I've not seen this species to my knowledge. Too early for the Rustic/Uncertain tribe I think, so what else could it be? You're getting some interesting moths, keep it up!

  2. Thanks Chris, I felt they looked right for Vine's, and it was mid May, so as you say, a bit early.

  3. Looks like Vine`s Rustic to me too Adam.
