Heath rustic and friends

A Heath trap in the local woodland last night produced 22 macros and 3 Micros. Most numerous were Eudonia Mercurella, Spruce carpet, Common marbled carpet, Brimstone, Flounced rustic and Purple bar. Pick of the bunch were Heath rustic, Treble-bar, Tawny speckled pug, and Magpie moth. The guide books say that Heath rustic and some brightly marked examples of White-line dart are similar, so compare this one with the White-line dart posted a couple of days ago.
