Pug for ID?

Could this be as slightly early second generation Golden-rod Pug [FW 10mm] found last night in our conservatory? There is plenty of Ragwort around for the larval food plant and Golden-rod in the garden next door.

  1. An identical pug was on the kitchen wall today and I thought it was a Larch Pug...

  2. Hi Carolyn,

    I think your pug may be Larch rather than Golden-rod. White thoracic crest and post-median line sharply angled around discal spot are evident. Golden-rod has black dashes on wing veins.

    cheers

  3. Thanks Mike and Liz. It looks the perfect match. I wasn't completely happy but with the size, white thoracic crest and some chequering of the veins it seemed the best match I could find.
    I'll remember Larch Pug next time!
    Carolyn.
