The Square-spot Dart looks ok, 11 of the 13 county records before this are from the Aberystwyth area and 8 of them were in the last 10 years. Not so sure about the Sharp-angled Peacock because they are difficult to separate from Peacock. Two of the features to look for in Sharp-angled are; a distinct grey cross band running through the paw print and continuing on the hindwing, and a broken dark line around the edge of both wings. Neither of these are clear from the photograph. Let me know if you still have the moth.
Thanks Tony. I dont still have the peacock, but I will send you another photo.
Interested in your final verdict Tony. The sub-terminal line on the hindwing looks dotted (=Sharp-angled), but the angle of view isn't terriffic.
Beautiful moth species !!
This has been confirmed as Sharp-angled Peacock. This is the most northerly record ever in Ceredigion. There has been a number of records at New Quay this year so hopefully it wont be long before we get them up here in the north.
