 Having been given permission to raise some records in this interesting fragment of woodland on the banks of the Teifi I was pleased last year to catch a Scorched Carpet and whilst not as scarce this moth is certainly an equally good looker! Very fresh it has the violet hue, and surprisingly, some green scaling on the cilia and inner edges of the wings which this pic taken in the early morning dark of the forest doesn't really do justice.

Caught on March 23rd Coed Maidie B

  1. It certainly is a beautiful moth. The number of non-RIS records has quadrupled in the last 4 years (? more recorders or more moths).
