Dry night - moths to light

Plenty of moth activity due to the dry days/nights.

This is the Brimstone Moth - Opisthograptis luteolata:

The rather frequent Buff Ermine - Spilosoma luteum.

Difficult to catch the subtle blue colouring of the Clouded Silver - Lomographa temerata - under flash:

And finally for today, the orange form of Common Marbled Carpet - Chloroclysta truncata.

When identifying moths, pattern is virtually everything. Colour is much less important. And this specimen is VERY worn.
