Cross Inn Lychnis moth?

I hope that I have identified it correctly but it seems to be very light compared to a photo of one posted on the blog earlier this month. If it isn't Lychnis, perhaps somebody can point me in the right direction. Phil Dennis

  1. Hi Phil, looks good to me. The one it looks most like is Campion which can be a smaller, dumpier looking moth when you have it in your hand and has a pinkish colour when fresh.
    Lychnis does vary, have a look at a couple of websites.
