Holly Tortrix

I collected this spinning from Bilberry between Llyn Pendam and Llyn Syfydrin on the 29th May.  I was hoping it may be a Bilberry Pug but after a couple of days I had a peep at the larva and realised it was not a Pug.  The adult emerged yesterday the 22nd June and is a Holly Tortrix, Rhopobota naevana.
As this sometimes puzzles people as just another LBJ I thought I would share it, note the crease from the middle of the wing to the apex.
