Carcina quercana

I found this worn Carcina quercana in the garden today. Since the books list its flight period as Jul-Aug, I assume it's a second-generation moth.  Other moths from last night were: Dark Sword-grass, Set. Hebrew Character, Feathered Ranunculus, Angle Shades and Merveille du Jour.

  1. Hi Sarah, most of these are recorded in July & Aug, but you wouldn't be the first to have one in October. Here is one of mine from Lancshire...not as good a photo as yours by a mile!

  2. Thanks - I couldn't find many October sightings of it on the 'net and I was wondering if I'd misidentified it. Liking your Flickr photos!
