Small Rufous and Small Wainscot


If I have identified it correctly, this is a moth I wasn't aware of. Tony's updated moths of Ceredigion  shows very few records in the county when I was trapping in the late1980's, though is is apparently more commonly recorded now. I don't know why I gave it a second look, I wonder how many I have recorded as Small Wainscot in the past, though seeing the two side by side they are not at all alike.

  1. Only 10 county records for Small Rufous before 2000, 9 of them in the Dyfi area and 1 near Cors Caron in 1995.
