Svensson's copper underwing

Ina, these are Marc Botham's well manicured hands showing me what he confirmed as a Svensson's a couple of weeks ago.
Sorry not to put this in the Comments but don't know how to add a photo to comments.


  1. Good lord, Marc gets everywhere. I'm just about to do some of his micros. Ina, you can see the copper spreading smoothly up the wing towards the base, so yes it is Svennson's.

  2. Thank you Peter. That was my thought. I have difficulty doing it Marc's way so have to anaesthetise them....not sure I like that either, but when I have recorded a species once at a site I think it's better than agg.
