I caught this last night and have recorded it as a Golden-Rod Pug after checking with Tony.

I had recorded this as a White-spotted Pug, new for me, but the previous post by Pete Skinner has me wondering: any thoughts?

A selection of moths from the last few days, found in the area between the Llanbadarn road and Aber uni:

| Ypsolopha horridella - on the same wall every year since 2018, within the same two weeks. This one flew over to sit on my arm.|
