Rain stops play

A single moth to report: July High Flyer - Hydriomena furcata.

This is an extremely variable species, with differing ground colour, ornamentation colour and patterning. The key to this one is the 'round-shouldered' forewing and the tiny, dark, diagonal slash at the outer wing tip (more visible on the left wing). The previous one I saw was green and black.
