Clouded-bordered Brindle

With only light rain and low winds last night, I decided to run the 125W MV bulb for a change.  No moths actually in the trap but hunting round the garden I found 11 moths of 6 species: Light Brown Apple Moth x 5; Rusty Dot Pearl x 1; Nov. Moth agg. x 1; Mottled Umber x 1; Merveille du Jour x 2; and this Clouded-bordered Brindle (!).

  1. Wow, it's been a funny old year!!
    Could this be either a delayed second generation or a larva that kept feeding and it's next year's moth?
    Anyone else heard of them this time of year?

  2. I saw that the Norfolk Moths website had a record for 30th October 2014 but I couldn't see anything else around.

  3. There have been 3rd gen of a few species around this year.
