Golden-rod Pug

We believe this moth to be a Golden-rod Pug [FW 10mm] but would value a second opinion.  It was trapped this last weekend [night of 1st June] in a garden in Aberystwyth. Noteworthy were the white thoracic crest, the large oval discal spot [with also a discal spot on the hind wing], black chequered veins and  a whitish tornal spot together with the right flight period.

There was also this rather attractive Yellow-barred Brindle.

  1. Plant spa always includes the ferns and usually the Norfolk Pine because of all my plants they need humidity most. They join me several times a week for regular showers.native wetland plants
